UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to consider a motion under the Fixed Term Parliaments Act to hold a snap general election for the House of Commons in London.
The decision follows a heated debate with Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn in the Parliament. Under UK law, Johnson must receive support from two-thirds of Parliament in order to call snap elections.
Since assuming office, Johnson has been pushing for a withdrawal by the 31 October deadline, even without a deal. Because he lost the parliamentary majority, the prime minister can no longer guarantee that UK lawmakers will ratify any potential deal, should Brussels agree to renegotiate.
