The British Parliament was formally dissolved before the general election

Madrid, May 30. (European Press) –

The British Parliament was officially dissolved on Thursday ahead of the general elections scheduled for July 4 following snap elections announced by UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak last week.

“Parliament was dissolved on Thursday 30 May 2024. All business in the House of Commons and the House of Lords has concluded. There are currently no Members of Parliament and all seats in the House of Lords Commons are vacant until after Parliament has ended.” The general election is July 4, 2024,” the legislature’s website states.

Although the House’s 650 seats are vacant so far, that is not the case in the Senate, where they are appointed rather than elected. Members of the House of Lords retain their positions.

Last week, Sunak confirmed that legislative elections would be held approximately six months before the end of his term, after the possibility of moving the election date forward was on the table in recent months due to internal tensions within the Conservative Party.

Labor emerges as the front-runner and aspires to return to power after 14 years, with opinion polls giving it more than 40 percent of voting intentions, nearly 20 percentage points above the Conservatives. The UK Reform Party and the Liberal Democrats will compete for third place, ahead of the Green Party.
