Britain’s opposition parties said Friday that they won’t support Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s call for an election when the issue gets voted on next week, piling more pressure on Britain’s embattled leader as he seeks a way to make good on his promise to leave the European Union next month.
The parties have been mulling whether to agree to Johnson’s plan for an Oct. 15 election, which can only be triggered if two-thirds of lawmakers agree.
Johnson already lost a vote on the same question this week, but plans to try again Monday, saying an election is the only way to break the country’s deadlock over Brexit.
