    Johnson goes for victory

    Parliamentary elections in the United Kingdom are to take place on December 12. The polls indicate that the Conservative party, led by Borish Johnson, are favourites to win. However, according to political analysts, the Tories cannot be certain of getting the majority which would allow them to put a definite end to the issue of Brexit.

    The polls indicate that the ruling Conservative party led by Boris Johnson may win the majority, claiming 359 seats out of the 650 available in the House of Commons.

     ”According to the polls, the Labour party would come in second place with 211 seats in the parliament. The last place on the podium is up for grabs for the Scottish National Party, with 43 mandates. Political analysts say that the trends found in the polls are not a certain indication of what is to come in the realm of British politics.The uncertainty is mainly concerning Scotland. The leader of the Scottish National Party, Nicola Sturgeon, wants her country to be independent and to remain in the European Union. Sturgeon has been critical of Boris Johnson”- says prof.John Curtice, political analyst.

     ”The matter that has been dominating the election campaign in recent days was the issue of healthcare. The leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, provided documents, according to which the Boris Johnson administration allegedly negotiated secret deals with American companies to take over a share of the NHS”- says Nicola Sturgeon, first Minister of Scotland.

     ”The elections in the United Kingdom will take place on December 12”- says Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
