MPs are set to give their blessing to Boris Johnson 's plan for an early general election on 12 December.
MPs have rejected an attempt by Labour to change the Date to 9 December by a margin of 315 votes to 295.
Efforts by opposition MPs to lower the voting age to 16 and allow EU nationals to take part have failed.
Proposed changes to the PM's early election bill to extend voting rights were not selected for debate by The Deputy Speaker despite enjoying cross-party support.
This, they argue, would ensure that university students are more likely to be able to take part because it would still be in term time.
But the government has been digging in over the 12 December Date - Saying only this will guarantee enough time for Parliament to pass crucial Legislation relating to Northern Ireland before it is dissolved next week.Nicholas Soames has been Reinstated . . But Philip Hammond has not
With an election on the horizon, Mr Johnson has moved to heal wounds in The Party by restoring The Whip to roughly half of the 21 Tory MPs disciplined in September for rebelling over efforts to block a no-Deal Brexit .
It means they are free to stand as Conservatives in their constituencies if new candidates have not since been chosen. Some of the 10, including Sir Nicholas and Mr Burt, have previously said they would be retiring.When will we know if there will be an election?
It should become clear shortly whether there will be The First December general election since 1923.
If MPs back The Bill at its final Commons stage, then it will move to The House of Lords, where it is not expected to encounter significant opposition. It could then receive Royal Assent by the end of the week, meaning it has passed into law.
If The Bill is passed unchanged, Parliament will be dissolved on 6 November ahead of what is set to be a five-week campaign.
The Labour leader hopes for a souped-up version of his move forward at the 2017 election that would mean, contrary to The View of many of his own MPs, his project can continue and build.
The Lib Dems and SNP hope for a chance to stop Brexit happening, and expand their own political positions at a junction for the country.
But none of the parties can be remotely sure of what will happen next.
.What is the government's plan?
He said only a "refreshed and revitalised" Parliament could implement the 2016 referendum result and opposition to an election had "begun to crack" in The Past few days.
It would be fourth time lucky for Mr Johnson, who has previously failed on three occasions to get Parliament's approval for an election.
Crucially, the Legislation the PM is now proposing requires only a simple majority of MPs while, in The Past , he has sought to use the Fixed-term Parliament Act, which requires the support of two-thirds of all 650 MPs to go through.What has Labour said about an election?
He was cheered by members of his top team, as he made his announcement at Labour's campaign headquarters in Central London .
"We have now heard from the EU that the extension of Article 50 to 31 January has been confirmed. . We will now launch The Most ambitious and radical campaign for real change Our Country has ever seen. "The Other parties stand?
The SNP's Westminster leader Ian Blackford said a strong performance by his party would bring Scottish independence a "step closer".
Both his party and the Lib Dems want to fight the election on a platform of stopping Brexit entirely.
Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson said an election was the only way to do this, given there was not enough support in Parliament for another referendum.
Both The Independent Group for Change, which has five MPs, and Plaid Cymru , which has four MPs, have said they will vote against an election and instead continue to support a so-called "People's Vote" - or further referendum on Brexit .
Some former Conservatives are also against an election too.
Former Chancellor Philip Hammond - who was expelled from the Conservative parliamentary Party After voting against a no-Deal Brexit - said the idea of using "precious time" to hold an election, rather than passing the government's Brexit bill, "frankly appals me".
