British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he had reached a new agreement with the EU on “Brexit.” The politician urged the Parliament to support the document at a meeting on Saturday, October 19.
“A great new deal has been reached that will give us more freedom. Now Parliament on Saturday must allow us to implement “Brexit,” Johnson wrote on Twitter.
We’ve got a great new deal that takes back control — now Parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, violent crime and our environment #GetBrexitDone #TakeBackControl

Parliament must now vote on the new agreement. The deal can be approved or rejected. The UK is due to leave the EU on 31 October 2019.
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker also tweeted about the agreement.
“Where there is a desire, there is a deal, and we have it! This is a fair and balanced agreement for the EU and the UK, and it demonstrates our commitment to finding solutions,” it said.
