Poses the possibility of postponing Brexit again, this time until January 31
LONDON, 2 Sep. –
The British opposition will present a proposal that gives Parliament the final word on Brexit to avoid the possibility of leaving the EU without formal agreement, according to the text of the proposal that has transpired on Monday.
The procedure goes through the presentation of a motion for an emergency debate for this Mars which, if approved, will allow the Parliament to take control of parliamentary efforts after 3 pm on Wednesday. That day a law would be presented to vote that would force the Government to fulfill one of the following two conditions by October 19: either it reaches an agreement with the EU that is ratified by Parliament or gives the final word to Parliament for an exit without agreement.
If it does not meet either of these two conditions, the Government must request a new extension and postpone Brexit until January 31, 2020. If Brussels accepts it, Johnson must also accept it immediately.
If the European Council proposes a different date, then Johnson must accept it within two days, unless Parliament rejects it. If none of these conditions are met after the letter is sent, then the Government can withdraw or correct that letter.
