Boris Johnson: Electoral Race Is Very Close

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday, a day before Britain's general elections, that the electoral race is very close.

"The situation is very critical, the race is very close," he told Sky News. "I tell everyone that there is a real possibility that we will go to a suspended parliament tomorrow. This represents more drift, turmoil, and disruption for this country."

The British newspaper "The Guardian" said that both Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn have embarked on launching a final campaign for 24 hours, as the two teams insist that the race is still very close and that the polls that give the Conservatives the lead may be wrong.

Both Labor and the Conservatives described the vote on Thursday as "the most important in a generation" as the two sides have completely different plans from Britain's exit from the European Union and spending on public services.

The Prime Minister toured the country from Yorkshire to the Midlands, Wales, and London on Wednesday, sending his basic message that the Tories only needed more 12 seats to win the majority.

Meanwhile, Corbyn will start his day in Scotland and will visit at least five major seats on his tour around England, and he calls those who have not yet decided how to vote "to vote for hope in this election."

Governors go anywhere between six and 15 points, according to polls, which could mean anything from a comfortable majority to Johnson to the possibility of a hung parliament.

A detailed poll for each constituency published on Tuesday evening expected a majority for Johnson but decreased significantly compared to his previous set of results two weeks ago.

The survey is based on a large sample of more than 100,000 interviews conducted over the past six days, but given the margin of error, it cannot be ruled out the presence of a suspended parliament.
