The British government wants the necessary laws for withdrawal from the EU through the parliament. The final vote will be on Thursday.

Lower house chairman Jacob Rees-Mogg announced on Monday to begin with the second reading of the relevant “Withdrawal Agreement Bill” on Thursday. Draft will also be approved by the House of Lords. A process that usually takes several weeks rather than a few days.

The ambitious voting schedule calls for parliamentarians to meet on Tuesday and Wednesday until midnight. Whether! The delegates will join this marathon is questionable. On Tuesday they will first vote in a “program motion” about whether they agree with the schedule at all.

It was not until Monday afternoon that Speaker John Bercow passed the Prime Minister’s request Boris Johnson was abused that should again be voted on the already presented on Saturday new Brexit deal with the EU. Now only the laws are to be adopted, which regulate the exit. Johnson has declared that Brexit will be completed with or without a deal on October 31.

The EU Parliament cannot give its consent until the British government ratification process is completed

In contrast, that will European Parliament no longer vote on the Brexit agreement with the UK this week. This was said by the Portuguese parliamentary deputy Pedro Silva Pereira on Monday evening after setting the agenda. The schedule before the exit date October 31 will be even closer.

The EU Parliament cannot give its consent until the British government ratification process is completed, said Silva. That is not possible before Thursday. According to his statements, it could be decided on that day whether the European Parliament would convene a special meeting next week.

The appointment could be according to the European left-wing leader Martin Schirdewan the withdrawal day – the 31 October. But you have to wait and see if the EU states are possibly ahead of an extension of time, said Schirdewan. Also, the Brexit representative of the European Parliament, Guy Verhofstadt said, a consent this week is not possible. “The lower house is not finished”.

Until the exit date October 31, several important events to come

October 22: The British House of Representatives advised on a law ratifying the withdrawal agreement. The three-reading procedure can table amendments to change the agreement, such as permanent customs union with the EU. It is also conceivable to submit the deal to the Britain in a second referendum. Assuming that, ratification could be completed by Thursday.

October 24: Last regular European Parliament day before the Brexit meeting on 31 October. An initial vote on the treaty, which must also be ratified on the EU side, was removed from the agenda on Monday evening. Now it is to be decided on Thursday whether the European Parliament will meet next week for a special meeting, possibly on 31 October.

October 28 or 29: Conceivable dates for a special summit of the 27 remaining EU states, to decide on an extension of the exit period for UK. It is also possible that the Heads of State or Government will not travel to Brussels again, but will allow a postponement by written procedure. However, this only applies if there is no great need for discussion.

October 31st: As of today, last day of British EU membership. Without extension, it ends at 24.00 clock. Furthermore, 31 October is the last date for a special session of the EU Parliament for ratification.

January 31: UK’s proposed new exit date. As prescribed in a British law, the Benn Act. Prime Minister Johnson was forced to apply for the EU delay this weekend. But this could also choose a different deadline.
