On Thursday, UK voters return to the polls for their third general election in just four years.
The number of elections in this period (which is typically limited to one election every four years) highlights the difficulties Brexit has created within the domestic political landscape.
Battle For Brexit
With Brexit currently postponed until January 31st, 2020, this election is being viewed as a “single-issue” election over how Brexit will be handled. The Conservative party, under PM Johnson, has said that if it wins, it will work towards delivering Johnson’s Brexit deal and leave the EU by the new deadline, as planned.
However, the Labour party has said that if it wins, it will look to secure new terms with the EU. It will then give the UK public the chance to vote on whether to leave the EU with a new deal or remain in the EU, canceling Brexit.
