Next general election

The date of the next general election has not yet been announced.

Following the repeal of the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011, the new Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Act 2022 gives the latest date parliament can dissolve as “the beginning of the day that is the fifth anniversary of the day on which it first met”.

The current government first met on 17 December 2019, so the fifth anniversary of that date is 17 December 2024. The election will need to be held 25 working days after that date - this would be January 2025.
