Polls open in United Kingdom snap election

Malita Javier | 08 Junio, 2017, 17:35

Around 46.9 million people are registered to vote with over 40,000 polling stations open across the country.

Gibraltar does not vote in a United Kingdom general election, but Britain's main parties have nonetheless included manifesto commitments on the Rock, signalling heightened interest in against the back-drop of Brexit.

Seven people were killed on Saturday when three men aboard a van ploughed into pedestrians on London Bridge and went on a stabbing spree before being shot by police.

Voters are choosing 650 lawmakers for the House of Commons after Prime Minister Theresa May called the vote three years early, hoping to boost her majority before starting Brexit negotiations.

Ms May has seen her once-commanding lead over the Labour Party and its veteran hard-left leader Jeremy Corbyn narrow sharply since she surprised nearly everyone by calling a snap election in April.

The election is May's first since taking office after Britons voted by 52 percent to leave the European Union, plunging their country into an uncertain future.

Tehran attackers were Iranians, fought for IS in Syria and Iraq - ministry
An interior ministry official said the attackers had been dressed as women and gained access through a visitors' entrance. Tehran MP Elias Hazrati has said that the assailants were armed with two Kalashnikovs and a handgun.

In the lead-up to voting day, a YouGov poll predicted May could lose up to 20 seats of her 17-seat working majority in British parliament - meaning she would be well short of the 326 seats needed to form a government.

The Independent newspaper said the 44-34 lead for the Conservatives in a poll it commissioned from ComRes would give May a majority of 74.

YouGov, which found the Conservatives' lead had increased to seven percentage points from four during the weekend, also said Mrs May would bolster her power in parliament.

"They wanted this election to be very much a kind of Brexit vote and I don't think that's in the hearts and minds of Londoners at the minute, (not) almost as much as the security is", said Sheard, 22.

"I was going to vote Labour and I'm still going to vote Labour", said Tom Lewis, an insurance broker walking in Borough, the London neighborhood hit by Saturdays' attack.

Latest polls put her party anywhere between 12 to 1 point ahead.

Anuncian México y EU pacto azucarero
El precio de la azúcar cruda pasará de 22.25 centavos de dólar por libra, a 23 centavos , mientras que la de azúcar de refino pasará de 26 centavos por libra a 28 centavos .

The Conservatives say a government led by Labour would lead to overspending and political instability.

Theresa May will have a strong personal mandate to take into the negotiating room in Brussels on June 19, the date when Brexit talks are due to start.

The betting odds being offering for a hung Parliament have also narrowed after some recent opinion polls had indicated the possibility of such an outcome.

Basing her campaign on the slogan of "strong and stable leadership", she has said she alone could face the 27 other European Union leaders and clinch a deal that would give Britain control over immigration policy while ensuring favourable trading terms.

"Jeremy Corbyn just seems more for us", said 38-year-old Debbie Worthy, a mother-of-two in Middlesbrough, northern England.

The big differences in the poll findings in the run-up to Thursday's vote have added to skepticism among critics of polling who point to how the industry largely failed to accurately predict the outcome of the 2015 election and last year's referendum vote to exit the EU.
