The UK is set to go back to the polls on June 8th of this year, following the decision made by the Prime Minister (PM), Theresa May, to hold another General Election. The last UK-wide election, to determine the political landscape of the House of Commons, was held in May 2015. The decision to hold a ‘special’ election has been made primarily due to the timetable of Brexit negotiations, and the PM is also facing domestic challenges across the political spectrum following the EU Referendum. The Atlantic Council has published an article outlining some of the political challenges in the UK, and why the election has been called.
