Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn has stated that he welcomes the election announcement made by British Prime Minister May.
He observed that it is a chance to vote for a government that will put the interest of the majority first.
He charged that the Tories had failed to rebuild the economy and that he would be campaigning on housing, education and the NHS. Labour had been setting out policies offering a clear and credible choice for the country. We look forward to showing how Labour will stand up for the people of Britain.
