UK municipal elections put new opposition leader to the test in international
The media has already dubbed it a “Super Thursday”, with a tendency to pursue historical political moments that do not suit voters’ enthusiasm. Typically, voting does not exceed 25% in UK municipal elections. This 6 May, however, is particularly important. They would be the largest such election since 1973, and more than 48 million citizens would be called to the polls. In addition to autonomous elections in Scotland, with the SNP nationalists challenged with an absolute majority and their promise of a new independence referendum, Wales’ autonomous parliament is also elected, along with more than 5,000 councilors, 145 municipal governments and 13 mayors.
The British electoral system and each city council choose its own deadline to convene the elections, but the epidemic delayed planning several votes a year until 2020, which now accumulates to one appointment. The overall result will be used to measure whether disastrous management of the crisis, thanks to the success of Boris Johnson’s vaccination campaign. And again, or to question, Keir Starr’s New Labor leadership.
The latest polls predict a general conservative advantage that ranges between 11 and 17 points. In total, between 500 and over 700 delegates. This is not a high figure, but it contradicts the idea that these types of elections are safe zones for the opposition, as they propose voters to face the government. Some colleagues of former Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn have demanded that Starr resign if he fails to make a profit in the historic Labor Epidemes of the so-called “Red Wall” in northern England, which Johnson voted for in the December election 2019 Won. The leader of training on the BBC said, “I do not believe that anyone with any realism can turn to the biggest electoral defeat after 1935 and make the Labor Party the winner.”
The two competitions will be closely watched with Scottish permission. Mayor of London, where Labor Sadiq Khan is expected to hold his post and Hartlepul’s constituency on the northeast coast of England. The safe square on the left since it was built in 1974. Labor MP Mike Hill is facing charges of sexual harassment and has resigned from the post, and the Conservatives have gained a 17-point lead in the elections. Johnson has already toured the area three times, waiting for a symbolic victory that will strengthen his leadership.
