British Parliament to be dissolved: “One month for everyone to campaign”

Dissolution of Parliament means that it formally ends its work as new elections are announced.

– Now everyone gets a month to campaign, says Ulrika Bergsten.

Elections could be held by January 2025, but Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has called for a general election on July 4. Then 650 new members will be elected to the lower house of parliament for five-year terms.

Thus, the campaign is expected to get off to a good start. Rishi Sunak, who leads the Tories, and Keir Starmer, the leader of the Labor Party, are the main candidates.

– For party leaders, it is important to campaign for their cause by visiting workplaces and various large gatherings around Great Britain such as Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Wallet issues dominate

The UK has left the European Union, the economy is in dire straits, the country has high unemployment and labor shortages. At the same time, the issue of immigration is being discussed again.

– Before elections, purse matters and financial issues dominate. We have seen poverty in Sweden and Europe not seen in a very long time. Berkston says how it is possible to live in British society with low incomes and high rents, expensive energy and expensive food.

Opinion polls point to a victory for Labor and thus a change of government. According to A recent survey by The Guardian puts 29 maj Labor won 44.9 per cent of the vote and the Tories 23.5 per cent.

– Political scientists, I used to describe it as saying you should vote Labor to punish the Tories. It is an expression of dissatisfaction.
