UK Prime Minister Theresa May Requests Brexit Extension

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May has formally requested a three-month delay to Brexit.

As things currently stand, the U.K. is set to exit the European Union on March 29.

But May sent  a letter to  European Council President Donald Tusk on Wednesday asking for that date to be pushed back to June 30.   May's request for a Brexit delay was expected.

British lawmakers have voted down her transition plan twice now, and the speaker of the House of Commons said  a third vote won't be held  until May makes significant changes to the deal.

On top of all that, Parliament's boxed May in even more by  ruling out a no-deal Brexit .

May's request for a Brexit extension will  need to be approved  by all 27 other EU member countries in order to become official.  There's no guarantee the EU will grant the request, and upcoming European Parliament elections scheduled for May are complicating things.  Reuters reports  the European Commission told EU leaders that the U.K. would be required to participate in those elections if it stays in the EU past May 23.
