The British parliament has postponed a decision on Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal, inflicting a severe defeat on him. MPs voted 322 to 306 for a motion to postpone the decision until the ratification law has been passed. Johnson is thus required by law to apply to the European Union for an extension of the Brexit deadline beyond October 31.

It is expected that the prime minister will try to get the deal through Parliament in time by submitting the bill on Monday. On Tuesday, another important vote could be pending with the second reading of the law. If the law passed this hurdle, Johnson could expect to get the support for the deal yet. In any case, Johnson would need the support from the opposition.

Letwin amendment provided a basis for broadest possible coalition against the government, Brexit deal was not openly rejected.

Behind the push to postpone was the concern that the Brexit deal could not be ratified in time before Brexit. The consequence would be an unregulated exit from the EU. To prevent a no-deal-Brexit, the deputies would have to wave through everything the government puts before them in the ratification law. Above all, however, the Letwin amendment provided a basis for the broadest possible coalition against the government because the deal was not openly rejected.

MPs voted 322 to 306 for a motion to postpone the decision 

An application for postponement would most likely be granted to the remaining 27 EU countries if there was a clear justification. How long the EU could delay is still unclear. An adequate justification for an extension of the deadline in Brussels is the announcement of new elections or a referendum.

Northern Irish Protestant DUP did not want to support the new regulation. Johnson missed important votes. Johnson’s predecessor Theresa May failed with her Brexit deal three times in parliament.
