UK ELECTION

UK election to decide Brexit future

By Ninian Carter

December 12, 2019 - With the UK deeply divided over Brexit, how people voted in the 2016 referendum is key to which party they will support in the election.

The United Kingdom’s contentious 2016 referendum to depart the EU and subsequent years of political rancour have led to an unpredictable general election.

The British public will head to the polls on December 12, with Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson hoping to win the majority so he can deliver the country’s exit from the European Union, known as Brexit.
