Why does UK need elections?

The current Prime Minister, Conservative leader Theresa May, announced early elections on April 18, arguing that she needs a stronger mandate for negotiations on the so-called "Brexit". Conservatives, according to most polls, remain favorites for the elections, but their separation from the Labour Party has declined markedly during the election campaign.

During the campaign, the Conservatives favored a tough line in the negotiations with Brussels. Laborites, led by Jeremy Corbyn, argue that they will seek to maintain a free-trade zone with the EU. The Liberal Democrats are in favor of holding a new referendum on the Brexit, and the Scottish National Party is in favor of a second referendum on the independence of Scotland.

The campaign was overshadowed by the terrorist acts committed in the past weeks by radicalized Islamic terrorists: an explosion in Manchester on May 22, and the attack on the London Bridge and in the Borough Market area on June 3.
