The British House of Lords has approved the decision of the House of Commons on Friday. This clears the way for the last formal step in the legislative process – the approval of Queen Elizabeth II, which is expected on Monday.

That against the massive resistance of Prime Minister Boris Johnson The law passed, that requires the EU Commission in Brussels apply for a postponement of Britain’s exit from the European Union by 31 January 2020. If it fails to agree a withdrawal agreement with the EU by 19 October. Johnson has rejected this decidedly and insists on a Brexit by 31 October, if necessary, even without a contract.

Johnson is calling for quick new election, The Labor Opposition also wants early elections, but only when it is certain that there will be no-deal-Brexit. With new elections in this case would be expected in November, possibly even in December.

The vote in the House of Lords is another setback for Johnson. The conservative head of government had failed on Wednesday with a request for new vote on 15 October in Parliament. In order to push ahead with early elections and thus regain the lost parliamentary majority, the Prime Minister on Thursday gave up his opposition to the bill to prevent no-deal Brexit. Parliament will now vote on the second request for new elections on Monday.

In the dispute over the compulsory break for the parliament, the prime minister, however, recorded a stage victory. A court in London dismissed the session break, but allowed an appeal to the UK Supreme Court. The trial will take place on 17 September.

Johnson’s decision to allow Parliament a weeklong session break had provoked nationwide protests last week. Critics suggested that the conservative head of government tries to undermine parliament and thus undermine democracy.
