The British Government confirms that Parliament will cease its activity on Monday

The British Government has confirmed that the suspension of parliamentary activity will start this Monday, at the end of a debate in which the opposition is likely to once again lay down the plan of Prime Minister Boris Johnson to call early elections.

The Executive has the permission of the Queen, Isabel II, to terminate the session until mid-October, just a couple of weeks from the date established for the UK's departure from the EU. This suspension was planned for this week.

A spokesman for Downing Street has confirmed before the media that Parliament will be closed once the procedures planned for this Monday have been completed, including the debate on the motion for an electoral advance. The longest suspension in recent UK history will conclude on October 14.

Johnson's office has insisted that the 'premier' “is not going to seek an extension” of Article 50, whose activation began more than two years ago the process of breaking up the United Kingdom from the EU. “If the deputies want to solve this, there is an easy way, to vote today in favor of elections and for the citizens to decide,” said the spokesman, according to 'The Guardian'.

The Government's plan is to fix these elections by October 15, but the block opposition has already announced that it will oppose the expectation of clear guarantees that there will be no Brexit without an agreement on the 31st of the same month. Thus, the main opposition formations bet to call the elections not before November 1 and with the extension of the divorce already established.

Jason Stein, a former government advisor who until this weekend was part of the team of the resigned Amber Rudd, has assured Sky News that the internal surveys that the Administration is considering do not predict a good result in case of early elections. The fork they shuffle is between 295 and 300 seats, below the 325 that would mark the threshold of the majority.
