There is a lot of uncertainty that has cropped up in Britain following the dissolution of the United Kingdom Parliament.

The UK Parliament announced its dissolution for Tuesday at midnight, local time, 25 days before the upcoming general elections.

This means that there will be no legislative business in either chamber until a new Parliament is elected.

According to the UK political setup, the dissolution of the current Parliament means that both the House of Commons and the House of Lords end their activities until a new Parliament is elected. 

A new House of Commons will be elected on 12 December, while the Lords will retain their positions.

Under normal circumstances, a new Speaker of the House is also elected, along with the House of Commons, but this year, Lindsay Hoyle  was elected early to replace John Bercow following his September resignation.

Under the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011, the UK Parliament must be reelected every five years, which means the next general election was supposed to take place in 2022. 

However, on 29 October, the House of Commons voted for early election in December over the ongoing political Brexit impasse. 

But uncertainty now looms around the fate of Brexit, as the decision for UK to either leave or stay in the  European Union has since been pushed farther into the future.
