BREXIT: British Parliament votes for an extension – Johnson determined to exit by end-of-month
Following an extraordinary session debate in Britain’s House of Commons, Members of Parliament voted in favour of a Motion that obliges Prime Minister Boris Johnson to request an EU extension on Brexit.
This is as long as the Brexit Agreement is approved by the London Parliament.
The vote passed with a majority of 16 from the 630 MPs who voted.
Consequently, the vote on the latest agreement reached between Johnson and the EU was not taken.
In his reaction Johnson said he will not negotiate an extension with the EU and he will put the agreement he has negotiated to the vote in the coming week.
