Citigroup says UK PM May to win majority of 104-190 in June 8 election
British Prime Minister Theresa May is likely to win a majority of 104-190 seats in the June 8 election, Citigroup said in a research note published on Friday.
“Prime Minister Theresa May called early elections on 8 June to boost her mandate and win time to implement her version of ‘hard-but-smooth’ Brexit,” Citi said in the research note.
“National polls, experts’ analyses and our own constituency-level simulations suggest that her bet should pay off.”
Citi added that it saw no signs that May was moving towards a so called “Singapore-upon-Thames” deregulated low-tax economic model.
British Prime Minister Theresa May maintained her strong lead in opinion polls ahead of next month’s national election, with one analyst saying she was on course for the kind of huge success Margaret Thatcher enjoyed over 30 years ago.
May is asking voters to strengthen her hand as she seeks a mandate for her plan to implement the result of last year’s Brexit referendum by quitting the European Union’s single market.
