General Election in Britain: PM Sunak Begins preparation

Ahead of  the general elections in Britain, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's confidence has weakened due to the defeat in local and by-elections. 

Therefore, he has started communicating with the voters of the country even before the elections begin. 

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Monday urged voters to trust him to keep them safe in a dangerous world. 

He touted his achievements in a political campaign speech ahead of national elections due sometime this year. 

With the ruling Conservatives trailing opposition Labor in the polls, Sunak tried to convince voters that they had confidence in him. 

During a speech with Conservative think tank, Sunak said only he could defend the country against a "axis of authoritarian states". 

He attacked Labour, saying that the opposition party could not match their pledge to increase defense spending or tackle illegal immigration and that only they had "a clear plan" for the future. 

However, Labor Party leader Keir Starmer rejected Sunak's allegations.

"The next election our country is going to face is a general election and the choice in that general election is clear. It is an election of the future versus the past," 

PM Rishi Sunak said “We have a clear understanding of what the future holds. We have known for a long time that this is a dangerous time in the world, but also a most transformative one…and in such circumstances I am the only one who has bold ideas And a clear plan that would provide a secure future for the country."

Labor responded by accusing the Conservatives of overseeing "costly chaos".
