"Theresa May surprised observers with a snap election call on April
18th. This election comes only two years into her government’s mandate."
"The Prime Minister
had promised for months that she would not call an early election
however, she claimed when she made the announcement on the steps of 10
Downing Street that she needed a decisive victory against the opposition
in order to prevent them from derailing her Brexit plan as she enters
negotiations with the EU."
