UK elections to be held tomorrow in shadow of terrorism

Date:

The United Kingdom will hold parliamentary elections on June 8 with parties undertaking the final day of campaigning ahead of the polls. The elections will define Britain’s approach to leaving the European Union and its future after the exit.

The election was announced by the present British Prime Minister Theresa May in April in an effort to secure a larger majority in the government.

May’s election campaign started with an expectation of securing a landslide victory with a majority of 144 over the Labour Party’s Jeremy Corbyn. However, the Labour Party has gained considerably on Theresa May and her Conservative Party, with latest prediction polls showing a range of 12 to 1 point lead for May’s party.

The campaigning for the upcoming election has been overshadowed by the recent terrorist attacks in Manchester and London. The attacks have brought security into the spotlight in addition to the Brexit negotiations that have taken centrestage in the election campaign.

The elections will lead to the formation of a new government that will negotiate the terms of Britain’s exit from the European Union later in June.
