UK opposition parties have agreed to protest against Prime Minister Boris Johnson's plan for a snap election and do not want it to take place before the Brexit deadline date of 31 October.

On Wednesday, the parliament rejected Boris Johnson's call for an election to be held on 15 October.

After completing the committee and report stage as well as the bill’s third reading by 17:00 local time on Friday, the House of Lords will send it back to the House of Commons, where MPs will vote on it again on Monday.

On Wednesday, the House of Commons rejected a snap general election, approving a so-called Benn Bill, which proposes that the government can’t withdraw from the European Union on 31 October without having an agreement with Brussels.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has repeatedly stated that he is determined to leave the EU by 31 October, with or without a deal.
