UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The European Union expects a “concrete proposal” from Britain on Brexit as soon as possible, a European Commission spokeswoman said on Wednesday.
On the proposal, Andreeva said at the press conference: “The faster the better.”
Their assumption is that Brexit should happen on October 31, and that should happen with an agreement.
“We will engage accordingly and constructively with the UK on any concrete proposals they may have.”
Asked about Britain’s possible suspension of parliament, Andreeva said: “We do not comment on the internal political procedures of our member states.”
Earlier Wednesday, Queen Elizabeth II approved Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s request to suspend the House of Commons from the second week of September until October 14, in a move strongly opposed by the speaker. And opposition parties.
The suspension begins only a few days after the council met after its summer holiday in September, and weeks before Britain leaves the European Union on October 31, according to the BBC.
The move, according to the opposition, means that members of the House of Commons will not have enough time to pass laws that would halt Britain’s Brexit without an agreement on October 31.
Johnson insisted, however, that the House of Representatives would have “plenty of time” to discuss Brexit, according to the BBC.
While on Sunday in Biarritz, France, to attend the summit of the leaders of the Group of Seven industrialized nations, Johnson said that the possibility of achieving his exit from the European Union through an agreement, is beginning to strengthen.
Britain was due to leave the European Union on March 29, but the date was extended to October 31, due to the political crisis in the country over the exit agreement.
