The British Parliament is holding an emergency debate on Wednesday about Prime Minister Theresa May’s request to the EU to postpone the Brexit until 30 June. Under current planning, the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union on March 29 at 11 p.m UTC.
The British House of Commons has twice rejected the basic agreement concluded by Prime Minister May with Brussels on the Brexit. May said in the lower house that she therefore asked EU President Donald Tusk in a letter to postpone until the end of June.
The ‘Brexitman’ of the largest opposition party, Keir Starmer of Labor, immediately requested a debate. In his party’s view, the delay is too short to take a new course in the Brexit policy and to come out of the impasse.
John Bercow gave Starmer his way and decided that there would be a three-hour emergency debate, British media reported.
