Does The general election was announced mean here that general election was told the people officially?

The people were officially told that there would be a general election on that date.

Thanks Bez ,

For the six corrections. You gave me a good evening. I am really very happy.
There were mistakes where I was inattentive, but I think they are also mistakes, in fact they are very annoying for myself. There were the others what I have to learn because I didn’t know till now.

Thank you very much again:
