UK Parliament Speaker John Bercow said he will stand down on 31 October 2019 or at next general election — whichever is soonest, APA reports citing Euronews.

He said he would not contest the next election if parliament voted later on Monday in favour of holding one.

If, as expected, MPs reject the government's attempt to call an election, he said he would quit on October 31: "The Speaker John Bercow has announced that he will stand down. He said that he would stand down either at the end of this Parliamentary session, or on October 31 2019", said in the Twitter page of UK House of Commons.
