MPs Make Decision To Delay Brexit

MPs have voted by 412 to 202 to delay Brexit beyond March.

The UK is scheduled to leave in just two weeks, but the decision by parliament means May will now request an Article 50 extension of at least three months.

The prime minister could request a significantly longer delay to Brexit if MPs reject her deal for a third time next week.

All other 27 EU member states would have to agree to an Article 50 extension.

LONDON — Members of Parliament have voted to delay Brexit just two weeks before the planned departure date as Theresa May struggles to get her deal through the House of Commons.

MPs on Thursday voted by 412 to 202 for a motion which instructs the prime minister to ask the European Union for an extension to the Article 50 withdrawal process.

If accepted by all the 27 other EU member states, it means that the United Kingdom will not leave the EU on March 29 as originally scheduled.

May has told MPs that if they agree to back a Brexit deal by Wednesday next week, the UK's departure will only have to be delayed by three months, meaning Brexit would take place on June 30.

However, if the House of Commons does not approve a deal by Wednesday, the UK government will be forced to ask for a much longer delay, in order to create time to find a new way forward, the prime minister has said.

The move comes after MPs voted to reject a no-deal Brexit under any circumstances on Wednesday evening.
