The British called Labor leader Corbin the new prime minister of the country
The leader of the Labor Party, Jeremy Corbin, would have become the new British Prime Minister in the event of early general elections in the country. According to the survey, Labor can get a majority in the British Parliament.
Laborist leader Jeremy Corbin would have become the new British Prime Minister if there were now general elections in the country. This is evidenced by data from a poll by the sociological service Electoral Calculus, published by The Telegraph. The survey was conducted from April 2 to April 11, more than 8.5 thousand people took part in it.
According to the survey, the opposition Labor Party would be able to get 296 seats in the House of Commons after the general election, while the ruling Conservative Party – only 259. With the support of the Scottish National Party (SNP), Labor could gain a majority in the 650-seat lower house British Parliament, the newspaper notes.
Total conservatives could lose 59 seats in the House of Commons. According to experts, a sharp reduction in support for the ruling party may be caused by dissatisfaction of Tory supporters due to the inability of the government to hold Brexit. Conservative supporters will prefer to cast their votes to the Independence Party (UKIP) or the newly created Brexit Party, which was founded by former UKIP leader Nigel Faraj.
In the case of early parliamentary elections, former conservative leader Ian Duncan Smith, Labor and Pension Minister Amber Rudd, parliamentarians Zach Goldsmith, Stephen Crabb, Justin Greening and other Tory representatives may lose their positions, Telegraph stresses.
