Members of the British Parliament have approved Prime Minister Theresa May's plan to hold an early general election on June 8.

May made a unexpected announcement Tuesday that she would seek a "snap" election less than halfway through her government's five-year term, with the aim of gaining a stronger mandate for the country's historic withdrawal from the European Union.

After debating the motion put forward by May in Parliament, 522 of the 650 sitting MPs voted in favor of the June 8 election, well and truly passing the threshold of two-thirds needed to approve the plan.

Thirteen voted against the motion.

The announcement marked a U-turn for May, who had repeatedly said she would not seek an early vote.

The snap vote is the latest twist in a turbulent year in British politics, which was plunged into turmoil when the country unexpectedly voted to leave the European Union last year. The hotly contested "Brexit" referendum ended with the resignation of then-Prime Minister David Cameron.
