Can the Prime Minister call a snap general election? What are the rules on it being called? #generalelection
No, though she would probably get one if she wanted. General elections used to be held at a time of the prime minister's choosing (as long as the Queen agreed) but since 2011's Fixed Term Parliaments Act, UK elections have been fixed at five-yearly intervals. She could call an election though if she got the support of two-thirds of MPs to agree to an early poll - or if a bare majority of MPs agreed to repeal the entire act.
