Former Thanet Councillor and 2015 Green Party Parliamentary candidate for South Thanet, Ian Driver, has called for a general election to be held as quickly as possible this year.
Speaking after the
announcement that Theresa May will become the UK’s next Prime
Minster on Wednesday of this week Driver, said “Following the
recent referendum vote to leave the EU we are now living in uncertain
and unstable political times, it’s therefore totally unacceptable
and lacking democratic legitimacy for our next Prime Minster to have
been selected by the votes of just 199 Tory MPs. The very sensitive
and unusual circumstances facing our country make it absolutely
essential that the voters of the UK should have the right to chose
their next Prime Minister at the ballot box as quickly as possible”.
