Selin ATAY-TDO-Boris Johnson’s imposition of exit without transition deal was blocked, then he is looking for legal ways to prevent further delay to Brexit.
While Johnson aimed Britain’s departure without transition deal before Oct. 31, an opposition bill which would force Johnson to ask the European Union for an extension to Britain’s departure to avoid an Oct. 31 exit without a transition deal was approved by parliament’s appointed upper chamber, the House of Lords, on Friday.
On Sunday, Johnson’s advisors gathered to block opposition law draft which would give three-mount postponement if the compromise cannot be reached between EU and Britain. After meeting, it is planned that Johnson will write a letter which determines deadline as Oct. 31 for Brexit.
As Johnson simply wants to get out without a deal, the opposition is trying to stop him from forcing a no-deal Brexit through parliament. Therefore, it seems that the consensus cannot be reached between Johnson and parliament. Once Johnson expelled more than twenty members of parliament who do not share same standpoint with Johnson, many resignations happened within government.
