British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s initiative to hold early parliamentary elections was rejected again.
According to the results of the voting, 293 parliamentarians voted for the elections, but this is not enough for the adoption of the initiative. The Prime Minister’s proposal was opposed by 46 deputies.
Earlier, the British Queen Elizabeth II without an agreement with the European Union approved a bill to ban “Brexit.” In the absence of agreements on the conditions of the country’s exit from the European Union in October, it will be postponed for three months — until January 31, 2020. Boris Johnson is strongly against it.
Britain was officially due to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019, but British politicians were unable to reach a compromise on the deal, which led to a government crisis and the resignation of Theresa May as Prime Minister. Boris Johnson during his first speech as the new British Prime Minister on July 23 said that the Kingdom, in any case, will leave the EU in the coming autumn. His deadline is 31 October. London has received a reprieve from Brussels to develop a mutually acceptable Treaty that will smooth over the consequences of “Brexit.”
