British PM informs Queen about dissolving the parliament

LONDON, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson met with Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday to inform her about dissolving the Parliament ahead of the general election, slated for December 12.

Meanwhile, British political parties have officially launched their five-day electoral campaigns, platforms, and advertising activities, hoping to win as much supporters and voters as possible for the vacant seats at the House of Commons’ Lower House.

Campaigns are expected to be geared, for the most part, towards tackling social issues such as health, education, and retirement, in addition to finding ways to deal with Brexit and its repercussions.

The conservative party, led by Johnson, stresses the importance of completing Brexit as soon as possible, especially after amending it, while other opposing parties suggest canceling the deal or conducting a new popular survey.
