European leaders permitted Britain a six-month-long detainment for the departure of Brexit. The time allowance apparently safeguarding the continent from a chaotic no-deal departure at the end of the week.
If Mrs. May receives the detainment and London agrees to remain a part of the European Union after 22nd May, British voters will have to participate in the European parliamentary elections. President of France Emmanuel Macron raised the potential voice protesting a long extension, but most leaders supported it and the French had to settle for a promise that the detainment will be evaluated at an EU summit on 21st June.
The host of the summit and the EU Council President Donald Tusk tweeted, “ EU27 has agreed on an extension of Art. 50. I will now meet PM @theresa_may for the UK government’s agreement”, as the UK Prime Minister came back to the summit to present her verdict on the plan.
Most of the 27 European leaders assembled in Brussels, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, had supported a plan for Brexit to be halted for up to a year.
But as the discussions went late into the night, Macron with support from Belgium, Austria, and some smaller EU states – organized for a short delay of only a few weeks and inquired solid guarantees that London would not interrupt in EU business during the time.
UK Prime Minister, Theresa May already told that if Britain is still an EU member while the European parliamentary election starts on 23rd May. The UK voters will take part in that election. But some EU leaders are unapproved that she is responsible, despite one official telling reporters her presentation had been “solid”.
Without a delay, Britain would be due to end its 46-year long membership of the European Union at midnight on Friday with any deal, imperiling economic chaos on both sides of the Channel.
UK Prime Minister agreed on a separation deal with the EU last November but MPs in London have declined in three times, pushing her to turn to the main rival Labour party in a bid to find a way through.
But these discussions are going slowly, and the prime minister confronts intense pressure from hardline Brexit supporters in her Conservative party not to bargain.
