UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The British deputies approved in the third reading a draft law requiring the government to defer Brexit.
After the previous reading, the draft was amended. The new version received 327 votes in favor and 299 against. For the bill to enter into force, it must be approved by members of the House of Lords.
This may happen in the evening of September 5, but due to parliamentary procedures, the process may be delayed.
Earlier on September 4, the House of Commons spoke in favor of moving to the second reading of the bill obliging the government to delay the country’s withdrawal from the EU for three months.
The British parliament is opposed to the current version of the agreement with Brussels on the country’s exit from the EU. However, Brexit does not suit him without a deal either. Brexit was supposed to take place on March 29, but due to unsuccessful voting it had to be postponed to October 31, 2019.
Now the parliament intends to force Johnson to ask the EU to postpone Brexit from October 31 to a later date, but the prime minister has consistently stated that he intends to withdraw the country from the EU with or without a deal.
