The British PM plans to hold the general election in the country the 8th of June if the Parliament allows to do so (2\3 of MPs should vote for it). Mrs. May had no plans to hold the elections so early, but she believes that Westminster should be united more than it is now. Mrs May answered critics, saying she had come to the conclusion “recently and reluctantly”. She is now “seeking support” as she holds a motion in the House of Commons to call the election for June. Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has said he will back the motion for an election, saying in a statement: “If you want to avoid a disastrous Hard Brexit. If you want to keep Britain in the Single Market. If you want a Britain that is open, tolerant and united, this is your chance. Only the Liberal Democrats can prevent a Conservative majority.”
