The Senate of the House of Representatives passed the postponement withdrawal bill.
In the Senate of the British Parliament, the debate on a bill calling for postponement of the EU-European withdrawal deadline is resumed, and the vote is expected to be passed later this evening in Japan time. The opposition party that proposed the bill is ready to postpone the withdrawal of Prime Minister Johnson, and Prime Minister Johnson, who wants to stop the postponement, has been forced into a more severe situation.
In the Senate of the British Parliament, deliberations on a bill to postpone the withdrawal deadline from the EU from the end of next month to the end of January next year resumed at 6 am in Japan time at 6pm.
The bill is expected to be passed as early as the night of 6th, with the support of the largest opposition and labor party members who proposed the bill and the conservative party members who rebelled against Prime Minister Johnson.
In response, Prime Minister Johnson intends to withdraw from the deadline at the end of next month, and will submit a motion to the House of Representatives again on the 9th of the week to call for a general election to prevent the postponement.
However, approval of the motion requires the approval of more than two-thirds of the House of Representatives, and the cooperation of the opposition party is indispensable. The Labor Leader, Corbin, has been discussing with other opposition leaders on the 6th about the response to the motion, but if the postponement of the withdrawal deadline is not promised, the general election will not be held. Prime Minister Johnson, who wants to stop it, has been forced into a tougher situation.
