In two weeks, Britain will vote for a new parliament. Conservative PM Johnson may not see the time of day for a poll. However, Labor leader Corbyn threatens a debacle.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, according to a new poll, is about to get a clear victory in the parliamentary elections on December 12 with his conservative party Tory. This emerges from a survey published on Thursday night at the Yougov Opinion Research Institute for the "Times".
If elected this Thursday, the Torys would get 359 of 650 seats – 42 more than in the last election of 2017. The Labor Party of the Jeremy Corbyn opposition, on the other hand, would get only 211 seats, 51 fewer dell & # 39; last. The head of the Scottish government (SNP) of the head of the Scottish government Nicholas Sturgeon would come to 43 seats, the Liberal Democrats to 13. Thus, the Tories would have a majority of 68 seats.
According to Labor, the second worst defeat after the start of the war. In other polls, the Tories were clearly ahead of the other parties. Britain has the right to vote by majority – only those who obtain a majority in one of the 650 constituencies also obtain the corresponding seat in parliament.
The Yougov survey is considered quite reliable: in 2017 it had envisaged a parliament without a clear majority, which turned out to be correct. 100,000 people were interviewed within seven days, taking into account, among others, the age, gender and local political conditions. The most important electoral promise of conservatives is to complete the exit of the EU by 31 January 2020 with the renegotiated agreement on Brexit. The work promises to negotiate a new Brexit agreement within three months. Subsequently, in a second referendum, the British should choose between a Brexit with close ties to the EU or remain in the international community.
