Brexit vote: Prime Minister versus Parliament


Exclude an EU exit without a deal? The British House of Commons votes about it. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has other plans. The events in the live blog

  • In the British House of Commons, MEPs vote on a renewed Brexit extension this Wednesday: if there is no agreement with the EU by 19 October, which the Parliament approves, the Brexit deadline will be extended for another three months - until End of January 2020. A no-deal Brexit should be excluded.
  • Should MPs vote for such a bill, Prime Minister Johnson wants to hold early elections. On Tuesday, however, 21 conservatives turned against the Prime Minister - so Johnson has no majority. However, in order to decide on new elections, he would need a two-thirds majority of the deputies behind him.
  • As things stand, Britain is leaving the European Union on 31 October. If it goes by the will of the Prime Minister, this should be possible without an agreement.

                  A new round in the struggle for Brexit : On Tuesday, a majority in the British House of Commons has opposed Prime Minister Boris Johnsons. Twenty-one Conservative MPs also joined the opposition, allowing Parliament to vote this Wednesday on a bill providing for a new deadline extension for the EU's exit.

                  Johnson announced after his defeat in the lower house a vote on new elections . But he would need a two-thirds majority. And at least the opposition made it clear: Johnson can not count on her votes.
