Call for Early General Election

Call for Early General Election

We call upon the House of Commons to pass a motion for an early general election.

Why is this important?

With the news of our elected departure from the European Union and the resignation intent of current PM David Cameron, I believe that an early general election is vital.

There are many ways to implement this decision, and - having demanded more political control - the people deserve the right to choose the way forward, and who leads it.

The quicker we call this, the quicker it can be decided and we can begin the serious job of negotiating a fair exit from the EU and restoring faith in a seemingly divided country.

Under the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act an early general election can be called if a motion (as worded in section 2(2) of the Act) that there shall be an early parliamentary general election is passed by the House of Commons with at least two thirds in favour of the motion.
