British Prime Minister Boris Johnson summoned his ministers for a meeting on Monday, stoking speculation he might call the elections if parliament tackles the government over an EU exit plan that his opponents fear will push the country to a devastating exit without agreement.

Johnson’s pledge to pull his country out of the bloc on Oct. 31, whether with an agreement that facilitates the secession of the world’s fifth-largest economy from or without his biggest trading partner, has pushed Britain into a constitutional crisis and a dispute with the rest of the 27-nation bloc.
