LONDON, Sep 8 (Reuters / EP) –
The Conservative Party of the United Kingdom has advanced this Sunday that in the next general elections they will present an alternative candidate to John Bercow to preside over the House of Commons for considering that he has “flagrantly” abused his power during the Brexit voting.
Bercow, a 56-year-old 'tory', has been in office since 2009 but has gained great visibility during the succession of debates and votes that have been held in recent months in the British Parliament on the United Kingdom's departure from the European Union .
The Minister of Business, Andrea Leadsom, published on Sunday an opinion article in the 'Mail' in which she announces that the Conservative Party will try to unseat it in the next elections because she believes that she has failed the political formation by allowing the Prime Minister , Boris Johnson, lost control of the legislative headquarters.
Leadsom has referred to what happened last Tuesday, when the honorable members approved a plan to force Johnson to ask the EU for a further postponement of Brexit if by October 19 the Parliament has not approved an agreement on the divorce between London and Brussels or has not given the Government express permission to produce it without any agreement.
“The president is the highest position of the House of Commons, his highest authority. As a politically impartial arbitrator of legislative procedures, the president is in a position to protect the Constitution and monitor the behavior of the House of Commons,” he recalled. Leadsom, considering that “what we saw on Tuesday was a blatant abuse” of his power.
Johnson, who came to office last July after winning the primary process that triggered the resignation of Theresa May for the Brexit crisis, has come to say that “he would rather be dead in a ditch” rather than request another delay of Brexit . The 'premier' has promised that the United Kingdom will leave the EU on October 31, as planned, with or without agreement.
Parliament has rejected on three occasions the agreement negotiated by the Government of May and the EU, while the community bloc refuses to reopen the negotiations, insisting that the current version is the only one possible, although it has shown itself willing to add political statements for the tranquility of the British.
