LONDON, Sep. 5 (EUROPE PRESS) –
The Government of the United Kingdom will present a new motion before the House of Commons for deputies to speak again on Monday about the plans of Prime Minister Boris Johnson to hold early elections in mid-October, before the theoretical date of Brexit .
The leader of the Conservative Party in the House of Commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg, confirmed on Thursday the second attempt, a day after he did not get enough support to remove the polls again on October 15, as Johnson claimed.
The Labor Party and the Liberal Democratic Party have made it clear that they will not support any electoral call if there is no guarantee that there will be no way out without agreement from the European Union. The opposition hopes to conclude on Monday the parliamentary process of the law aimed at blocking this chaotic Brexit.
Rees-Mogg has clarified that the parliamentary activity will not be suspended until the procedures related to this law are completed, since for the next week the House of Commons is scheduled to be paralyzed at the express request of the Johnson Government.
To achieve the electoral call, the Executive has to obtain the support of two thirds of the Chamber. However, on Wednesday he stayed away from this threshold of 434 deputies by obtaining only the support of 298, in a context marked by the abstention of a large number of legislators.
This route is the most ordinary but not the only way by which the Government could force the electoral call, since the BBC has recalled that it could also propose a specific law that would only require the support of a simple majority and even expose itself to a motion of censor and trust that there is no alternative block.
