I know that the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 says that
Early elections can be held only:
- if a motion for an early general election is agreed either by at least two-thirds of the whole House or without division; or
- if a motion of no confidence is passed and no alternative government is confirmed by the Commons within 14 days.
What is the minimum time frame that such early elections can be held? Based on Theresa May's snap elections, it seems that 6 weeks is the minimum, but is there any legal standard, or is it only tied to what Parliament itself will pass?
