UK’s Rishi Sunak calls snap general election for July 4

52

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has called for a snap general election for July 4, ending weeks of speculation and setting up a possible political sea change for the United Kingdom.

Sunak made the announcement outside 10 Downing Street after holding a meeting of his cabinet where he informed them of his plans to dissolve Parliament and send Britons to the polls.

“Now is the moment for Britain to choose its future,” Sunak said on Wednesday afternoon, reminding citizens the choice is between him or Labour Party leader Keir Starmer — who he suggested did not have a plan of action for the U.K.

Under British law, a general election needed to be held by January 2025, and Sunak had repeatedly said it will be in the back end of 2024. Britain’s Conservative Party has been in power since 2010, the longest reign for a U.K. party in modern times.
