Chairman of the Committee on International Affairs in the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev criticized the initiative of British Prime Minister Theresa May. She initiated early parliamentary elections. The senator is convinced that the conservatives will definitely lose the majority. The politician compares her action with his predecessor David Cameron, who turned the referendum on the country’s withdrawal from the EU into a «vote of confidence» to the Cabinet, but miscalculated.
«As the famous English football player Gary Lineker wittily remarked ,» Theresa May scored her own best goal this season. » Appeals to the head of government to resign on this background, of course, are quite expected, «Kosachev notes.
The senator is convinced that the outcome of the vote will affect the withdrawal of Britain from the European Union. This moment may drag on, and during this time the British will try to prove the inexpediency of such an approach.
