UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — More than one million Britons have signed a petition demanding that Prime Minister Boris Johnson not suspend the work of the House of Commons.
This came the day after Queen Elizabeth II approved the government’s request to suspend parliamentary sessions for more than a month, which was widely criticized by opposition parties and a number of conservative deputies.
The BBC reported on Thursday that more than one million people had signed a petition demanding that parliament not be suspended.
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.
According to a statement issued Wednesday by the Queen’s Council of Advisers, the freeze on the work of Parliament will begin no later than September 12, and until October 14 next.
