Labour Party leader calls for election to end Brexit deadlock

Reuters
Britain's main opposition, Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn on Thursday called for a general election to resolve the current deadlock in parliament over Brexit. 

Speaking at Wakefield in northern England, Mr Corbyn said, he will renegotiate the agreement with Brussels if they come to power. 

He said, if the government cannot pass its most important legislation, then there must be a general election at the earliest. 

The European Union has ruled out any renegotiation of the deal.

The Labour leader has said he will seek a vote of no confidence in the government if parliament, next week votes against the Brexit deal that Prime Minister Theresa May has negotiated with EU leaders.

If the government lose a no-confidence motion, there will be a period of 14 days in which parties can seek to find an alternative working majority in parliament and a general election would be called if they fail to do so.
