Gazette readers were polled as to whether or not they believe there should be a general election called, in the wake of the UK’s new prime minister Liz Truss.

Those following the @RossGazette Twitter account where asked: “Do you think there should or should not be a general election in the next few months?” Seventy-three per cent, said that a general election should be called within the next few months. This is somewhat higher than the national polling from YouGov who reveal that 62 per cent of their participants belive there should be a general election, with only 24 per cent of people saying there shouldn’t; 15 per cent answered “don’t know”.

Calls have been put to prime minister Liz Truss to call an election due to the fact that she’s taken policy decisions substantially different to the ones form PM Boris Johnson campaigned on in 2019.
