May said Britain needs a general election before beginning detailed Brexit talks, and that holding this election is the only way to guarantee certainty and stability in the years ahead. A draft law paving the way for the election will be published Wednesday. Under the fixed-term parliament act, the date for the next election is set for 2020.
