UK lawmakers to prevent a no Deal Brexit
Yesterday U.K. lawmakers took action in an effort to take command of the Brexit matter from U.K’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
The legislators, voted and the results were 328 to 301 giving them the ability to obtain the command of the parliamentary affairs from the administration. This act may enable them in theory to obstruct government attempts for the UK to depart from the EU without an agreement on October 31. The Prime minister announced that he would begin the process for a fresh general election following this delay. As soon as Wednesday an additional vote will take place on the legislation, and, if this vote succeeds, it will probably create additional pressure to the prime minister that will probably drive him to ask another expansion over the UK’s withdrawal date, to January 31 next year.
