Will the UK prime minister call a snap general election within a year of taking over from Boris Johnson? This question will be resolved as YES if the UK PM calls for a snap general election before September 5th 2023 (even if the actual election is held after this date). It will be resolved as N/A if there is a general election called for any other reason, e.g. the government loses a confidence vote.

Update: did not anticipate Truss resigning 5 weeks in lol. I'm going to continue this market, removing the word 'next' as the spirit of the question is will the Tories at large call a general election or try to carry on despite questions of legitimacy.
