British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has proposed a new election for the British House of Commons on 12 December. He said that in an interview with the BBC on Thursday.

For a new election Johnson needs a decision of the Parliament by a two-thirds majority. That is, at least some of Labor’s MPs must agree. Labor party had different signals on Thursday before Johnson’s statement.

A number of MPs prefer to make another attempt to transpose the deal negotiated by Johnson into national law, if necessary with substantial changes, without re-election. There are also such voices from Johnson’s own conservative Tory party.

Especially in Northern Ireland there was considerable resistance. Johnson’s deal basically envisages that a more or less porous customs border must be established between Northern Ireland and the mainland of Britain. This would leave Northern Ireland on paper with the rest of the UK from the EU Customs Union. However, Northern Ireland would continue to be bound by EU trade law.

The probritical loyalists feel abandoned by Johnson. From Downing Street came different information on whether it would come to customs controls between Northern Ireland and the rest of Britain.

Northern Ireland Loyalist Party leader Nigel Alexander Dodds said in parliament to Johnson and his Brexit Minister Stephen Barclay: “They risk being seriously harmed by what they do to the Unionists in the Belfast Agreement (Good Friday Agreement), the St. Andrews Agreement, political institutions and political stability”.
