A pro-Israel advocacy group is urging British nationals living abroad to register to vote amid growing speculation a general election is imminent.

Michael McCann, director of the Israel Britain Alliance (IBA), suggested Britain’s exit from the European Union would be a leading preoccupation for voters residing in the UK.

But he added: “However, we don’t elect politicians to deal with single items, and people will exercise their franchise based on a range of issues.

“For many people the rise of antisemitism and our relationship with foreign governments will be a determining factor,” he added.

“So, our message to those eligible to vote is simple … don’t delay, register today.”

British nationals living abroad can apply to vote abroad for up to 15 years after leaving the UK. Find out more and register as an overseas voters here.
