Protesters are planning to gather outside Downing Street to demand a general election after Liz Truss resigned and paved the way for the Conservative party to choose its third leader in as many years.
The general election protest will take place on November 5, with left-wing campaign group the People’s Assembly asking supporters to meet at Embankment in London at noon.
Meanwhile Twitter campaigner Politics4You gained traction calling for a protest on the same day outside Downing Street, saying: “Refuse to be silenced”.
Quitting after just 44 days in office, Truss said the party would choose a new leader next week.
Truss’s own administration veered away from the mandate Johnson won in 2019, including reneging on a manifesto promise not to support fracking and by announcing unfunded tax cuts.
With polls predicting a Conservative wipeout, opposition politicians have been quick to call for an election.
