British Prime Minister Theresa May has indicated the planned third vote on the exit agreement with the EU could also fail. It will bring the agreement after two previous no-votes only next week again to the submission, if in the lower house a sufficient “support” sign off, wrote May on Friday in a letter to the delegates.
EU leaders granted Great Britain a moratorium on Brexit on Thursday. If the British Parliament approves the withdrawal agreement next week, Brexit will take place on 22 May.
If the treaty does not find sufficient support, Britain can apply for a further reprieve in Brussels by 12 April, May writes. Then, however, the United Kingdom would have to vote in the European elections in May. In her own words, May is “deeply convinced” that this step would be “wrong.”
