British PM Johnson to make case for general election

(AP) British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s office says he will seek the public’s support for his bid to hold a general election.

His Downing Street office says Johnson plans to speak directly to the public Thursday, a day after his bid for an early general election was rebuffed in Parliament.

Details about Johnson’s planned appearance have not been made public yet.

His office reiterated that Johnson will not ask European Union officials for another delay in enacting Brexit. Such a delay would take the United Kingdom’s departure from the bloc beyond the current Oct. 31 deadline.
