According to a report, Boris Johnson plans to hold the next general election in the winter as he believes it will affect Labor’s chances of victory.
It would be held in November or December 2023, four years after he led the Conservatives to a majority of 80 seats.
“Labour struggles to get its people out more than us, which benefits us,” said a cabinet source. Mirror.
“And we think people will start to see the consequences of leveling the PM’s agenda, with the construction of roads and the construction of homes in the Midlands and North.”
Tory Party chairman Oliver Dowden was asked earlier in the week whether a 2023 election had been planned. He said: “The PM has asked me to ensure that the Conservative Party machine is ready to go to the polls whenever.”
He said the government was “focused on the task of making sure we work for the British people” and was not speculating about the elections.
Under the current law, the prime minister would need the support of a two-thirds majority in parliament to hold an early election. But the Commons recently passed a bill that would repeal the Fixed Term Parliament Act 2011. If it passes the Lords, the bill would give the Prime Minister the right to call elections at his discretion.
The 2019 election campaign saw canvassers go door to door in the wind and rain on dark winter evenings. When election day arrived, it was the heaviest rain on record, but the prediction turned out to be a fall in turnout due to the weather.
Turnout was 67.3 percent, just 1.5 percent lower on the 2017 Sunny vote and higher than the last four elections of the 21st century.
The 2023 winter election will be only the second in the post-war era. But they were not uncommon at first – between 1900 and 1935 five out of ten elections were held in the winter.
