Theresa May ruled out a return to the ballot box to settle the U.K.’s political stalemate over Brexit and hunkered down on her plans for leaving the European Union.
“It would not be in the national interest to have an election” before the scheduled Brexit date in March 2019, the prime minister told reporters Tuesday en route to New York. She called a snap election in June 2017 — evoking Brexit — in a political miscalculation that wiped out her Conservative majority.
