Boris Johnson suffers a new setback in Parliament and agrees to propose elections for December 12

LONDON, Oct. 28 (EUROPE PRESS) –

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has received a new setback in Parliament on Monday and has announced his intention to propose on December 12 for early elections, as suggested by minority opposition parties.

The Johnson Government has filed a motion to call early elections, but has been defeated by obtaining only 299 favorable votes, far from the necessary 434 votes, two thirds of the House of Commons.

This is the third time that Johnson's proposal to call elections is defeated in Parliament, but the 'premier' himself will present a new motion this Monday for the electoral advance with the conditions set by the Liberal Democratic Party and the Scottish Nationalist Party , which could increase your success options.

The main obstacle could be the date, since the position of Scottish liberals and nationalists is to call early elections on December 9.

In the first vote, the Labor Party, the main formation of the opposition, has chosen to abstain, making it unfeasible in practice to succeed.
