The British House of Commons debated and ultimately defeated a motion that would have called for a general election for the U.K., with 298 lawmakers voting in favor of the election and 56 voting against it; a two-thirds majority was required for the motion to pass. The vote was viewed as a rebuke to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who had called for an election following the passage of a bill that would effectively block his ability to push forward with a “no-deal” exit of the U.K. from the European Union, something he said he was using as a bargaining chip with E.U. officials in Brussels. close
