Explainer: Is it too late to hold an election before Brexit? Yes, probably

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has repeatedly said he will take Britain out of the...

The stage is set for a showdown when parliament returns from its summer break on Sept. 3 with lawmakers who want to stop no deal threatening to bring the government down with a vote of no confidence.

The next election is scheduled in 2022. An early election is possible if a majority of lawmakers in Britain’s 650-seat parliament vote to hold one.

There are legal restrictions setting out a minimum period before an election can take place after the government loses a no-confidence vote, but not on the maximum period before one needs to be held.

Yes. British law states the country will cease to be a member of the European Union on Oct. 31, regardless of whether an exit deal has been agreed with the EU. It is within Johnson’s power to set a date in early November.

Under these laws, after losing a no-confidence vote the prime minister or his political rivals have 14 days to prove they can govern by winning a vote in parliament. If no government has proven itself during that period, the prime minister moves to dissolve parliament and sets an election date no sooner than 25 working days after parliament is dissolved.

This sets out the fastest possible timeline for an election:

Sept. 18 - 14-day period ends without an alternative government.

Oct. 25 - Earliest possible polling day if Johnson ignores convention that elections take place on a Thursday.

It is also considered unlikely that he chooses to hold an election on Oct. 31 - Brexit day.
