LONDON – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson arrived in London after urgently interrupting a visit to the UN General Assembly because of a new round of domestic political crisis. Footage of Johnson’s motorcade moving to the capital from the airport, broadcast by British TV channels.
On Wednesday, the country’s Parliament will resume work, and, as previously stated by the speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow, in today’s meeting is not scheduled session of the Prime Minister’s answers to questions of deputies. However, as representatives of the Prime Minister’s office informally reported, Johnson is likely to address Parliament after returning to London.
On Tuesday, Supreme Court justices unanimously ruled Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament illegal, a big blow to the Premier and the ruling Conservative party.
Johnson had previously obtained the Queen’s consent to close Parliament from September 10 to October 14. He explained his decision by the fact that the government needs to present a new agenda and start implementing the domestic political program. Many MPs accused Johnson of intending to withdraw from the EU on October 31 without a deal, concealing related information and documents, as well as misinformation from the Queen to obtain authorization to suspend Parliament. The Supreme Court thus upheld their view.
