UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — His repeated application for early elections in parliament was not supported. Most likely, the prime minister will still have to bow to Brussels with a request to postpone Brexit.
Boris Johnson lost again: the House of Commons rejected a bid by the British Prime Minister to hold early elections. The initiative was supported by 293 parliamentarians with 434 votes necessary for adoption. True, 46 legislators directly opposed.
At the same time, the Labor Party said they were ready to support the proposal of the head of the Cabinet, but only if he agreed to ask Brussels for a postponement of Brexit. Johnson does not intend to go for it, because his motto is Brexit with or without a deal.
At the same time, according to CNBC, Johnson, speaking after the vote, said that “this government will no longer detain Brexit.”
“I have an important meeting on October 17, and no matter how many tricks this parliament thinks up to tie my hands, I will strive to reach an agreement in the national interest,” the British prime minister added.
Boris Johnson is trying to start the process of holding new parliamentary elections, as British MPs want to delay the process of the country’s exit from the European Union.
Meanwhile, on September 12, the British Parliament leaves for forced vacations.: Johnson won approval from Queen Elizabeth. Legislators have to rest until October 14, that is, to work on the eve of the Brexit scheduled for October 31, only 2 weeks remain. So lawmakers are trying to do everything possible now by engaging in an active confrontation with the Prime Minister, otherwise the risk is extremely high that the United Kingdom will nevertheless find out what “hard Brexit” is.
