UK parliament will have chance to vote on Monday for early election

LONDON - British lawmakers will have a chance on Monday to vote on whether to hold an early national election, the leader of the House of Commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg said.
Earlier, Prime Minister Boris Johnson wrote to opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to ask him to back an election on Dec. 12 and offering until Nov. 6 to pass legislation to ratify the government's exit deal with the European Union.
"Members will have an opportunity to debate and approve a motion relating to an early parliamentary election," Rees-Mogg told parliament.
