Rishi Sunak drops biggest hint that General Election will be held next October


No10 also released a picture of Rishi working at his desk

RISHI Sunak has dropped the biggest hint yet that the General Election will be next October - as he pleaded for 52 more weeks to get the job done.

In a video to mark one year in office on his social media accounts, the PM said he wants another year in office as there is “still work to be done.”

No10 also released a picture of Rishi working at his desk, with a slice of cake and a £25 half-pint mug by the designer Emma Bridgewater featuring five red Labradors.

It asks viewers: "So what can a country achieve in 52 weeks? Watch this space."

Last night Downing Street said there is "no election date confirmed" when asked if Mr Sunak was eyeing autumn next year.

His press secretary declined to rule out a snap election this year, however, telling reporters: "I never rule anything in or out when it comes to calling elections."

A general election is due to be held before January 2025, with speculation mounting over when Sunak will go to the country due to Labour’s double digit poll lead.

Recent polling has suggested that voters want an election sooner rather than later, with Labour overwhelmingly seen as the favourites to form the next government.
