Last week, the United Kingdom (UK) Parliament once again dismissed a most recent Withdrawal Agreement presented by Prime Minister Theresa May. As a result, the European Union (EU) has temporarily suspended Brexit from March 29, 2019 to April 12, 2019. The EU would have allowed an extension until May 22, 2019 had the Agreement been ratified by the UK Parliament, but this did not occur and therefore the new Brexit date is slated for less than two weeks away.
Based on the earlier Brexit developments this week, which included British lawmakers voting down Prime Minister Theresa May’s most recent negotiated Brexit deal and also voting against the prospect of leaving the European Union without a deal in place, the Parliament voted favorably on Thursday towards requesting an extension of Brexit. The UK’s departure from the EU is currently slated to occur March 29.
On Wednesday, March 13, the United Kingdom Parliament voted against exiting the European Union without having a withdrawal deal in place.
On Tuesday, March 12, the UK Parliament turned down the second Brexit withdrawal agreement brought forward by Prime Minister Theresa May. This is the second time PM May's negotiations with the European Union have been rejected by British lawmakers. Previously the Parliament turned down PM May's first negotiated agreement in January.
