LONDON, Sep 4 (Reuters / EP) –
The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, challenged Wednesday the opposition leader, Labor Jeremy Corbyn, to accept the call for early elections on October 15, while denouncing that the law to prevent a Brexit without agreement means a “law of surrender.”
“This Government will take the country of the European Union on October 31 and there is only one thing that comes our way, it is the 'law of surrender', currently proposed by the opposition leader,” Johnson said in the plenary of the House of Commons, addressing the Labor leader.
“I invite the opposition leader to confirm, when his turn comes shortly, that if that surrender law is passed, it will allow the people of this country to have their own vision of what they are proposing to deliver on their behalf, with the celebration of an election on October 15, “said the British premier.
This Wednesday's parliamentary session will serve to resolve the immediate strategy of the Brexit process, after Parliament took the day before with control of the calendar thanks to the support of several conservative 'rebel' deputies and a 'tory' that changed from match.
Johnson faces the possibility that the House of Commons will approve a law on Wednesday that will establish that the United Kingdom cannot leave the European Union without an agreement and that, for this purpose, the Government must request a new extension from the Community authorities .
