British Prime Minister Theresa May called for an early general election to be held on June 8, 2017, in a surprise announcement on Tuesday as Britain prepares for delicate negotiations on leaving the European Union.

May said she will go to parliament on Wednesday to seek approval for the early election.

May added that the UK needed an election because other parties are opposed to the Brexit plans to leave the EU.

May had previously said there would be no early election under her leadership.
