Brexit – is it a competition in constitutional law?

The British Parliament did not agree to hold the early elections for the third time. The oppositional Labor Party, which, having repeatedly demanded this before, is now in a frenzied desperation, trying not to hold the elections at all, is to blame. The reason is that it will not be able to win, or even will be completely destroyed. At the same time, it does not allow the government to rule the country normally.

It can be said that in Great Britain there is currently not only the monarch, but also the government who has the right to power, but do not rule.

The Labor Party’s position was criticized by other oppositional parties. Scottish nationalists and liberal democrats officially announced their desire to adopt an amendment to the law governing the holding of early elections: instead of the condition of 2/3 of the votes of the deputies, a simple majority is established. However, in their proposal there are moments with which it is not clear what to do (for example, requirements to give the right to vote to 16-year-olds and the EU citizens). Tomorrow, the government will also introduce an amendment bill on the holding of early elections.

Brexit is becoming more and more bogged down in writing and is like a competition in constitutional law.
