Unic Press UK: Sequel to a last-minute breakthrough in negotiation, in which, the United Kingdom agreed a fresh deal with the European Union with regard to leaving the bloc on October 31st, the UK’s Members of Parliament (MPs) would meet today to vote on this new deal.
The UK public elects 650 Members of Parliament (MPs). And these MPs represent the public interests/concerns in the House of Commons.
The Speaker and three deputies don’t vote and seven Sinn Fein MPs refuse to sit in Parliament. So, the Prime Minister has to secure the support, votes of at least 320 MPs to stand a chance of this new deal being consummated.
In a tweet Friday, the Prime Minister wrote: “We’ve got a great new deal that takes back control — now Parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, violent crime and our environment…”
After 43 years, the United Kingdom has voted on 23 June 2016 to Leave the European Union with 51.8% [more than 17.4 million of the total votes].
- Out: England voted to Leave;
- In: Northern Ireland supported the Remain campaign;
- In: Scotland voted to Remain; and
