New anti-Brexit party launched in Britain

(VOVWORLD) - A new anti-Brexit centrist political party called Renew was launched in London Monday, one of several initiatives by pro-European Union campaigners drawing hope from a perceived shift in the British public's mood.

The fledgling political party said it already had more than 300 candidates ready to contest the next general election and was aiming to recruit a total of 650 to stand in every constituency in Britain. The party was founded by former financier Chris Coghlan ahead of last year's general election. The next elections are not due until 2022 but many commentators believe they could come much earlier because of Prime Minister Theresa May's precarious leadership and feuding inside her Conservative party.
