Real Brexit talks will only start after June vote - EU Commission

"If you look at the timetable, had the election been in 2020 we would have been coming up to the most crucial part of the negotiations, at the end of the negotiations, in what would be starting to be the run-up to a general election".

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May speaks to the media outside 10 Downing Street, in central London, Britain April 18, 2017.

An early ballot will give the prime minister - or her replacement - more time to implement Brexit before another election.

The former interior minister, who became prime minister without an election when her predecessor David Cameron quit after last year's referendum vote for Brexit, enjoys a runaway lead over the main opposition Labour Party in opinion polls.

Labour and the much smaller opposition Liberal Democrats said they would vote in favour of the early election, all but guaranteeing her decision will be approved.

And he told MPs: "We welcome the opportunity of a general election because it gives the British people the chance to vote for a Labour government that will put the interests of the majority first".

Labour shadow ministers are among the potential casualties, with Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Sue Hayman, and Shadow Minister for Voter Engagement and Youth Affairs, Cat Smith, likely to lose their north-western constituencies.

"I will be asking the British people for a mandate to complete Brexit and to make a success of it", the Conservative leader said, to cheers from her lawmakers sitting behind her.

With Mrs May needing the support of 434 MPs - two thirds of all seats in the House of Commons - some 522 voted for the early election, with just 13 against. Because when we win, it's the people, not the powerful, who win. Former Conservative finance minister George Osborne, a powerful voice in favour of Britain's European Union membership during the referendum campaign, also said he would not seek re-election.

She said that "Brexit isn't just about the letter that says we want to leave".

Earlier this month, member countries of the EU signed European Council president Donald Tusk's strict set of guidelines that detail how the bloc will approach negotiations with Britain over its withdrawal from the EU. A total of 33 per cent said they were against it, while 27 per cent said they did not know.

A European Commission spokesman said the "real political" negotiations on Brexit will start after the election.

"It is unsustainable in the multimedia age of the 21st century to go to the country but not debate with the leaders of the other parties".

"We won't be doing television debates", May said, adding that politicians should spend election campaigns "out and about" meeting voters.

Basically, it would be a bridge between Britain ceasing to be an European Union member in March 2019 and a point further down the line when Prime Minister Theresa May feels the country will be ready and equipped to complete its full divorce from all European Union institutions.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said that broadcasters should hold debates anyway, with an empty chair in May's place.

"So we have this period in which the future of the United Kingdom in Europe, in the world, is in play and she wants to remove scrutiny and accountability and that lies beneath, I think, this snap decision just as much as the polls do".
