LONDON, Jan 4 — British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said today he expected to call a national election in the second half of this year, all but ruling out an earlier vote in May.

Sunak’s Conservatives are heavily trailing the main opposition Labour Party in the polls ahead of an election which must be held by early 2025. Opposition parties have called for the vote to be held as soon as possible.

“My working assumption is we will have a general election in the second half of this year, because in the meantime I have lots I want to get on with,” Sunak told reporters during a visit to central England.

“I want to keep going, managing the economy well and cutting people’s taxes ... I’ve got lots to get on with.”

Sunak and finance minister Jeremy Hunt have said they can turn attention to cutting taxes now inflation is under control.

An announcement that a spring budget would be relatively early, on March 6, had fuelled speculation that Sunak might opt for an election in May. — Reuters
