UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The UK government will ask the EU to extend the Brexit deadline to try to negotiate a single action plan with the opposition, said Tuesday at a seven-hour meeting with ministers Prime Minister Theresa May.
So far, neither the government nor the parliament can agree on the best way out of the EU. Meanwhile, the current date Brexit – April 12.
“Exiting the agreement is the best option, so we will need a further extension of the 50th clause (of the Lisbon Treaty on Exiting the EU – Ed.) As brief as possible,” said May.
She stated that she intended to discuss with the Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn the ways out of the crisis. May will also continue negotiations with leaders of other opposition parties.
“We need to focus on our future relations with the EU,” she said, recalling that the EU does not intend to re-negotiate an agreement on the conditions for Britain’s exit from the union.
The night before, the British parliamentarians once again failed to agree on any of the hypothetical options for further action in connection with Brexit. On March 29, they again rejected the agreement proposed by Prime Minister Teresa May with the EU.
