JAKARTA (TheInsiderStories) — Good morning! United Kingdom’ (UK) parliament will have Brexit vote on Friday. But the ongoing situation is there is a deadlock in the parliament.
Votes in parliament intended to find another way for Brexit deal. They had decided eight different options, with none got majority support. Even when Theresa May said that she’ll quit as prime minister if the parliament back Brexit deal, they still reached nothing.
If May can’t get her deal through a vote Friday, it is likely that she will ask for more Brexit delay or UK will have to leave European Union (EU) with no-deal. The EU itself starts talking about the future relations with the UK after a no-deal.
UK would have to pay its bills and keep the Irish border open. EU summit will be held possible on April 10 or 11. May must decided if she is going to bring her deal back for another vote and meet the EU’s deadline for getting it passed.
However, it still remains uncertain how, when or even whether the United Kingdom, the world’s fifth-biggest economy, will leave the EU.
