United Kingdom to vote in general election

Irune Rengel | 08 Junio, 2017, 17:20

Prime Minister Theresa May called the snap election seven weeks ago in hopes of increasing the Conservative Party's slim majority in Parliament and strengthening her hand in negotiating Britain's exit from the EU.

Polls suggest Labour has narrowed the Conservatives' lead.

Pollsters still expect Ms May's Conservatives to win, although talk of a landslide majority of more than 100 seats has faded.

Polling firm ICM said Conservatives' wide lead of 46 percent to 34 percent for Labour would give May a majority of 96 seats, up sharply from the working majority of 17 she has had until now and bigger than any Conservative majority since the days when Margaret Thatcher was prime minister.

The polls were conducted after a deadly attack by Islamist militants in London on Saturday. Recent terror attacks across the country fueled criticism over the Conservatives' security policy and specifically over the police cuts that Theresa May oversaw at the time when she was a Home Secretary.

On the eve of the parliamentary vote, May tried to bring the campaign back to Brexit.

Those negotiations will have an impact on Britain's employment, wages, housing prices, interest rates, immigration, trade levels, defense and security, public finances, and public services.

But the general elections are not expected to cause Britain to reverse its plans to leave the European Union.

As for ICM, company spokesman Martin Boon said: "This final poll confirms the pattern that ICM has produced over the last fortnight: a fairly healthy and static Conservative share with consolidation of the Labourbump first witnessed after the manifesto publication".

Labour has taken a less antagonistic tone against the European Union than the Conservatives.

UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Paul Nuttal voted in Congleton.

But the security issue was not seen as helpful to her main rival, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has voted against counter-terrorism legislation and expressed reservations in the past about police shoot-to-kill tactics.

"If we look at turnout over the past few elections and referendums, young turnout has been very low and there's no obvious reason why that would rebound", he said. If the Tories lose their majority-as one projection from YouGov suggested last week-May would nearly certainly face calls to resign. Under the act, national elections are held every five years, in May. "But in practice, Britain's future prospects have not been properly explored during this campaign".

Doble atentado en Teherán, Irán, deja 12 muertos y varios heridos
Los atacantes que irrumpieron en el Parlamento iban disfrazados de mujeres, según el viceministro del Interior, Hossein Zolfagari. Tras los atentados, Rusia, aliado de Irán en Oriente Medio, condenó los ataques e instó a "coordinar la lucha antiterrorista".

"The seven-point Conservative lead is the same as at the previous election, but we think it is likely they will nevertheless be returned with an increased majority", YouGov Director Anthony Wells said. But now, one day before British voters cast their ballots, polls predict a much tighter race.

Polls close at 10 p m United Kingdom time (2.30 am IST), with results expected to begin rolling in within an hour or so after voting finishes.

Meanwhile the so-called third party of British politics, the Liberal Democrats, along with the anti-EU UKIP party and the Green Party are likely to be scrapping for a handful of seats between them.

In the 2015 general election, then Prime Minister David Cameron led Conservatives had won 331 seats, giving the Tories a small but significant majority, and the Labour party won 232 seats.

"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.

UKIP now does not have any deputies in the House of Commons.

"The first is that rather than asking people which party they'd vote for, we showed respondents a list of the people actually standing in their constituency and asked which one they would vote for".
