The Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to table a new motion on Monday calling on MPs to back a snap General Election, it can be confirmed.

Johnson has confirmed he will allow MPs more time to debate his Brexit Withdrawal Bill if they agree to a December 12th General Election.

Under the conditions set out in the Fixed-term Parliaments Act (FTPA), two thirds of MPs are required to support a General Election for it to pass.

If agreed, the PM will allow Parliament to debate his Brexit deal until November 6th – at which point Parliament will be dissolved.

It has been rumoured that a substantial bulk of Labour MPs may refuse to vote in favour of any snap General Election.

Furthermore, whilst the SNP have repeatedly made clear they will back an election once a Brexit extension had been granted, it is currently unclear whether Lib Dem and Independent MPs will do likewise.

If the motion passes, it will be the first December General Election held in the UK for almost 110 years.

Evolve needs your help more than ever.

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
