UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson suffered a crushing defeat in parliament, as deputies rejected the bill, which allowed leaving the EU until October 31.
At first, the British parliament passed Brexit bill in the second reading, which included the text of a new agreement on the conditions for leaving the EU. 329 members of the House of Commons voted for the bill introduced by the government with new Brexit conditions, 229 voted against.
However, in another key vote, the deputies rejected the Brexit bill consideration program, according to which the document should be adopted in three days so that the country could leave the EU by October 31.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson threatened to organize early re-election of parliament if deputies voted for a new postponement of Brexit.
On Tuesday, the UK government presented Parliament with a new Brexit bill, based on an agreement last week on the conditions for the country’s exit from the EU.
On Monday, the European Union began the process of ratifying the updated Brexit treaty.
Britain’s exit from the community is scheduled for October 31.
