As stated in the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011, every parliamentary session lasts five years only. However, there is a possibility of an early election to be called in case the two-thirds of the House vote for it. A similar case happened in 2017 when Theresa May called for an early election. So, because of the FTPA terms, the next general election has to take place on May 2, 2024. Though the next general election year odds for 2024 have the highest probability, there is also a chance of an early election.
So, according to the 10Bet Sportsbook, we may wait for the next general election after 2021. The odds for the years 2020 and 2021 are lowest; 26.00 and 11.00, respectively. The next general election will most probably take place in 2024 or even later (1.54). However, there is a high possibility of an early election, namely in 2023 (3.75).
Every election brings a lot of changes to the country, therefore, even the year of the general election matters a lot. Gamblers keep constantly placing their bets on all the possible events in the UK. Bet on the Tories in the UK, for instance, was among one of the most discussed bets in 2019.
Is there a possibility for an early election to happen?
The next general election year odds show the next election will not take place at least before 2022. Prime Minister of the UK is currently deciding whether to hold an early election or not. There is a support of two-thirds of the Members of Parliament that he needs. Therefore, gamblers also started placing their bets on the 2022 UK general election. Boris Johnson, however, wishes for an early election in order to restore the majority of the Conservative Party. Though calling for an early election has its risks, Prime Minister hopes to gain more seats in the House of Commons. Overall, if most of the Parliament members vote for an early selection, it will most probably happen then.
