The European Union, after hours of negotiations in Brussels has finally agreed to delay the Brexit process. The decision was taken after hours of discussion during which they rejected the Theresa May’s proposal for Brexit delay and further imposed their own two-part timetable.
This revised deal got approved after a tense summit in which May failed to convince EU leaders that she could persuade British Lawmakers to pass her overall withdrawal agreement to avoid no-deal Brexit on March 29. As per EU’s plan, if the House of Commons passes the divorce deal, Britain will leave EU on May 22.
However, if May’s agreement gets rejected once again then UK will have to face unconditional Brexit delay until April 12. With this they can bring new proposal for a way out of this deadlock. In such a deadlock scenario, if UK agreed to take part of in European Parliament Election in May then there is a possibility of getting further extension of several months.
Donald Tusk, European Council President said, “The UK government is to have a choice of a deal, her deal, a long extension or revoking Article 50. What this means in practice is that until the date, all options will remain open and the cliff-edge will be delayed.”
On the other hand Theresa May welcomed the council’s decision and she would make every effort to ensure that we are able to leave with a deal and move our country forward.
