British Parliament Rejects May's Latest Brexit Plan to Split from EU
Wednesday, 13 March 2019 16:02 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

British lawmakers on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected Prime Minister Theresa May's latest effort to set the terms of Britain's Brexit deal to split from the European Union on March 29.

The House of Commons voted 391-242 against May's plan, setting up a Wednesday vote on whether Britain should quit the 28-nation EU bloc without agreeing on any of the details of its departure. And if that fails, a Thursday vote on whether to ask the EU for more time to negotiate an agreement.

May implored lawmakers to adopt the deal she negotiated Monday with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker for "legally binding changes" to ensure that the border between EU member Ireland and Britain's Northern Ireland would remain open after Brexit.

After losing again, May, the Conservative Party leader, told the House of Commons, "I continue to believe the best and only way" to quit the EU is "in an orderly way."
