The vote came just one day after Prime Minister Theresa May called for a general election in June as division within the UK government has posed a threat to making a success of Brexit.

The UK’s prime minister could call an election at will until the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act was passed in 2011, which scheduled a general election every five years. The next general election was expected in 2020. However, a snap election can be held if two-thirds of the members agree on an early election.
