British PM Johnson Presents General Election For December

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said it was finally time to “get Brexit done.” Johnson said his government would present a bill to parliament.

According to Reuters, he wants to hold an election on Dec.12 and make Brexit happen.

Yet CNBC reported that U.K. lawmakers rejected Johnson’s general election plan.

Going to the polls is seen by conservatives as the best route to secure a hold on Parliament.
