A gen­eral elec­tion for the UK ( to go to the polls to vote in an elec­tion)

Vocable (All English) - - À La Une -

Just af­ter hav­ing as­sumed her role as Prime Min­is­ter, Theresa May was adamant there would be no gen­eral elec­tion be­fore 2020. Then, on 18 April, she de­clared an early elec­tion for June 8 of this year. Her ex­pla­na­tion for the u-turn is that she needs a strong man­date to ne­go­ti­ate Bri­tain’s with­drawal from Europe.
