Former deputy prime minister Nick Clegg has called on Prime Minister to call an early election.

In response, the Prime Minister countered that the Coalition Government had brought in a fixed-term Parliament, and that the decision on whether to call a general election would be the decision of his successor.

Mr Clegg also thanked David Cameron for his "service to the nation" during the five years he led the Coalition Government.

He also spoke of the Prime Minister to see politics from "other people's point of view".
