odds seem to be in favour of Theresa May holding on to her job as the British prime minister as voting is set to begin across the UK on Thursday morning under the looming shadow of the two deadly terror attacks that rocked the country in the past three weeks A total of 650 Westminster MPs will be elected with about 469 million people registered to vote in the country It remains to be seen if the Conservative party leader’s decision to call a snap general election follows the forecast patterns of the latest opinion polls and betting odds or the Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour party is able to make a dent into her slim majority in the House of Commons File image of Theresa May Reuters The final pre-poll survey done by Comres for the Independent newspaper gives the Tories a 10-point lead over the Labour party May’s ruling Conservatives are on 44 percent Labour at 34 percent the Liberal Democrats at 9 percent with far-right UKIP at 5 percent the Scottish National Party (SNP) at 4 percent and the Green Party at 2 percent This forecast is echoed in the nearly 100 million pounds expected to be bet on the outcome of the polls "Generally on average the polls tend to point toward a fairly small Tory majority whereas the betting is more optimistic of the prime minister landing a majority of around 70 seats" said a betting expert at Ladbrokes one of the UK’s leading bookmakers Betfair another leading bookmaker also views the Tories as the odds-on favourite to win the general election with odds of 1/12 However there are some pundits who point out that the pre-poll patterns are following similar trends as for the Brexit referendum vote in June 2016 the outcome of which had taken most pollsters by surprise The betting odds being offering for a hung Parliament have also narrowed after some recent opinion polls had indicated the possibility of such an outcome Officially it takes 326 seats for an overall majority in the House of Commons In the 2015 general election then Prime Minister David Cameron led Conservatives had won 331 seats giving the Tories a small but significant majority and the Labour party won 232 seats The official exit poll at the close of voting at 10 pm local time on election night is traditionally expected to give an indication of which way the vote is likely to go The constituency of Houghton and Sunderland South in north-east England has a history of being the first to declare the results with the complete results expected to be clear by early on Friday morning Sunderland is a traditional Labour party stronghold and the vote-share with which the party holds on to the seat in the region is often seen as a sign of things to come Brexit is expected to be the central factor behind voting patterns including for the estimated 15 million Indian-origin voters All the major parties wrapped up their campaigning on Thursday with a last-ditch effort to swing undecided voters May focused on her central message of the "strong and stable leadership" that she can provide for Britain’s exit negotiations from the European Union (EU) "Brexit is the basis of everything We need to secure our economy for the future we need to ensure we are getting more jobs better paid jobs more opportunities for young people in this country We can do that if we get the Brexit negotiations right" she said in one of her final speeches Corbyn on the other hand focused on his party’s promise to spend more on health and education "Never before has there been a clearer choice between the parties. a choice quite simply between hope and fear" he said The Liberal Democrats have been focused on their Remain-voting target seats while the anti-EU UK Independence Party (UKIP) has stuck to its central message of ensuring there is no back-tracking on Brexit The UK was recently rocked by two terror attacks Seven people were killed on Saturday when three men aboard a van ploughed into pedestrians on London Bridge and went on a stabbing spree before being shot by police The second attack took place on 22 vMay when 22 people were killed and 116 injured in a suicide bombing at Manchester Arena Islamabad: Pakistan’s macroeconomic stability earned in the past three years could be undermined if the country fails to continue with its reforms the IMF has warned amid the political tension over the sensitive Panama Papers case Resident Representative of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to Pakistan Tokhir Mirzoev said the economic stability needed to be used to make the gains achieved through it more permanent Representational image Reuters Mirzoev cautioned that the present trends could undermine macroeconomic stability "if the reforms do not continue" The warning came amidst looming political instability in the run up to a verdict in the high-profile Panama Papers case against beleaguered Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family for alleged corruption and money laundering The Supreme Court on Friday reserved its judgement in the case after concluding the hearings It is not clear if the verdict would unleash chaos in the country The Panama Papers last year revealed that Sharif sons and daughter owned offshore companies which managed their family’s properties The assets in question include four expensive flats in Park Lane London "The moment of opportunity earned through the stabilisation programme is a hard-earned opportunity to advance deeper structural transformation of the economy to ensure future stability" Mirzoev told the Dawn newspaper He said the key trends were widening of the current account deficit and a still vulnerable fiscal framework Pakistani economy has made progress in the last three years The IMF has projected that Pakistan’s economy will continue to grow at a healthy pace in 2017 and 2018 The IMF had raised its GDP growth forecast for Pakistan for FY 2017 from 47 to 5 percent and projected GDP growth of 55 percent Noting that the budgeted revenue would require a "significant effort" Mirzoev said the decline in reserves and the growing current account deficit were sources of concern "Currently the economy is flying on one engine and that engine is importing sectors while the second engine — exports — is lagging" he said Mirzoev said that the greater exchange rate flexibility will help rectify this imbalance but beyond that the government will need to engage with the exporter community more proactively to develop the plans to revive exports "Adding more generation capacity to the system is crucial but more generation without reforming a leaky distribution system could add to the circular debt and may compromise long-term sustainability of new energy projects In this context finding a permanent solution to power sector arrears will be critical in the period ahead" Mirzoev said when asked about the nature of the reforms to be undertaken Mirzoev is currently on rounds meeting with business and opinion leaders around the country following the latest Article IV report released by the fund this week "One important message of the report is the need to rebalance the federal-provincial fiscal relations There are important gaps in the devolution of resources and responsibilities to the provinces under the last NFC award" he said He said that the accord had created a mismatch between provincial government incentives and responsibilities "The provincial governments should be empowered but the devolution of powers needs to be better aligned with the devolution of resources; and the interests of the provinces could be better aligned with those of the centre and the broader national objectives" Mirzoev said The outcome of this mismatch is a fiscal system that is unbalanced insufficiently flexible and less prepared to absorb large shocks he said adding that provinces have a say in key national policy decisions but often do not bear the equal obligation when it comes to funding such policies It is important to take appropriate steps to address the growing imbalances early on and not allow the economy to come back full circle to where it was before the "moment of opportunity" was attained he said "Reserves are still adequate for the foreseeable future and there is still some debt carrying capacity so the situation is not exactly dire But its recent trend is worrisome and to reverse this will require some concerted effort" Mirzoev said Mumbai: Young Mumbai batsman Shreyas Iyer on Sunday said that the India A tour to Australia has helped him grow as a player Recalling a similar tour game against South Africa where he did not have much success Iyer said that he has become a more relaxed batsman since then "I was facing Dale Steyn (during tour game against SA) for the first time and it was really tough as a youngster He was in peak form.no complaints Recently I got 100 against Bangladesh (2-day game in Hyderabad) and with that motivation I came into this game The flow also went well and I am really happy" Iyer told reporters after the drawn game between India A and Australia in which he scored his career-best 202 not out in a first innings total of 403 Shreyas Iyer hit 27 fours in his career-best score of 202 not out PTI "I am a bit more relaxed not thinking much about opposition talking to myself rather than focusing on what goes on around me except field positions The India A tour to Australia was an amazing experience "It was a first time for me in Australia Bowlers were also good over there There was not even bounce; either balls were staying a bit low or bouncing They were really seaming wickets and it (tour) has played a major role" he added Iyer who struck seven sixes and 27 fours during his 210-ball knock said he wanted to take it session by session "I was just planning to play session by session splitting my score into 10 runs and it worked well We also were losing wickets and as soon as I reached 184 I decided to just charge the bowler (Stephen O’Keefe) and try to make it in one single over as we had just one wicket in hand "I was just playing on merit of the ball I have worked hard throughout the season and it has paid off well It’s a special innings against an international team I really played nice strokes I hardly got any chances while batting; usually I get life and all that This was one of my best innings" said the 22-year-old who got his ninth first-class century in 38 games and also went past his previous best score of 200 against Punjab at the Wankhede Stadium in October 2015 Although Nathan Lyon went for 162 runs while taking four wickets Iyer rated his bowling better than O’Keefe’s who claimed three for 101 "He’s (O’Keefe) a left-arm spinner It’s easier to play with the spin but Lyon was getting good bounce and bowling straight too so he was more effective than Stephen" he said Lyon was also hit by tail-ender Krishnappa Gowtham for four huge sixes on his way to a whirlwind 74 off 68 balls Gowtham and Iyer added 138 runs in as many balls for the seventh wicket "He (Lyon) was not that happy when Gowtham came in and started attacking him He was really disappointed by the way he (Gowtham) hit him (Lyon) He started asking me who is this guy I told him he’s an off spinner Later he asked me whether he was acting (of injuring his hamstring) when fielding He was not that happy when he was taken off after six overs" said Iyer St Petersburg: Russia breathed a sigh of relief on Saturday after its football team won the opening match of the Confederations Cup and the country demonstrated that one of its most problematic World Cup pitches was fit for international matches Russia convincingly beat New Zealand 2-0 at the St Petersburg stadium in front of 50251 people including President Vladimir Putin and FIFA president Gianni Infantino who addressed the crowd before kickoff Russias Fedor Smolov scores his team’s second goal as Russia won 2-0 against New Zealand Reuters Putin welcomed fans to what he called a "big football festival" and thanked Infantino and FIFA for the faith they had shown in Russia "The fact the leader of the country came to the match is on the one hand an additional positive but it is also an additional responsibility" Russia manager Stanislav Cherchesov whose team face Portugal on Wednesday told reporters "We coped with the task before us" Cherchesov said Although Russia were under pressure to perform well on home soil after slipping to a record low 63rd in FIFA’s world rankings this month the country faced even more scrutiny over issues off the pitch in the run-up to the two-week tournament The 68000-seat St Petersburg stadium will be a flagship venue at the 2018 World Cup and the home of Russian football powerhouse Zenit St Petersburg but its decade-long construction marred by corruption allegations and delays has so far caused more disappointment than satisfaction A new pitch had to be hastily laid before Saturday’s kickoff after uprooted chunks of grass and bare spots on the field spoiled the first match held at the new venue in April Before the problems with the grass issues with the stadium’s retractable pitch technology made the playing surface vibrate and rendered it unfit for matches But on Saturday the pitch survived without noticeable damage "I don’t know how it was to play on but judging by the game it seemed the quality (of the pitch) was rather good It allowed us to play" Cherchesov said CurbingViolence After clashes between Russian and English soccer fans marred last year’s European Championship Putin adopted legislation toughening punishments for stadium violence as part of a broader crackdown on hooliganism The Russian interior ministry has since blacklisted 292 fans effectively banning them from attending official sporting events Russian fan leader Alexander Shprygin who was deported from France during Euro 2016 told Reuters on Saturday that he had been barred from attending his country’s match against New Zealand just a few hours before kickoff He said Confederations Cup organisers had notified him that his fan-ID needed to attend matches had been cancelled in what appeared to be a further attempt to curb violence Russian authorities insist that the Confederations Cup’s ticketing system which requires ticket holders to apply for a personalised fan-ID ensures that all fans are screened and troublemakers are kept away "The chances of losing the right to attend Confederations Cup and World Cup matches are significantly increased for people who are known to have committed serious violations" the organising committee said in comments e-mailed to Reuters FIFA has for the first time implemented a three-step procedure at the Confederations Cup that allows referees to stop matches in the event of racist or discriminatory incidents At Saturday’s game there were two pre-game stadium announcements warning fans against discriminatory behaviour FIFA general secretary Fatma Samoura said on Friday that the estimated attendance for the tournament would be 65 percent and that Russia’s match against European champions Portugal had been sold out for weeks But empty seats remain a concern with Russia’s Sport Express reporting that some tickets were being handed out to state workers for free in a bid to fill the stands at an upcoming Confederations Cup match in Kazan
