LONDON, Jan. 23 (EUROPE PRESS) –

Queen Elizabeth II has promulgated the Withdrawal Agreement law that guarantees an orderly exit from the United Kingdom from the European Union on January 31, in line with the commitment made by the Boris Johnson Government after the December elections.

The firm has been announced by the majority 'tory' in Parliament and by the vice president of the House of Commons, Nigel Evans, who has read the so-called 'royal consent' to the deputies. The text thus concludes a process that on Wednesday had received the last parliamentary approval.

The ratification, however, will not be complete until the European part has also been pronounced. The Committee of Constitutional Affairs of the Eurocamara has approved this Thursday, which will allow MEPs to adopt the divorce agreement on the 29th in a plenary session. Then, the governments of the Twenty-seven must give their approval, although it will be done by written procedure to expedite it.

The symbolic signature of the text by the president of the European Commission, Ursula Von der Leyen, and the head of the Council, Charles Michel, will take place this Friday.
