British officials to vote on Brexit Today and some new changes may help make the exit plan go through.
British Prime Minister Theresa May returns home with what she says is a major win: a better Brexit for Brits.
Brexit, put simply, is Britain exiting the European Union and it appears the UK and EU have finally reached an agreement that puts the split in concrete.
Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay says these binding modifications “strengthen and improve” the United Kingdom’s agreement to withdraw from the European Union.
“Now is the time to come together, to back this improved Brexit deal and to deliver on the instruction of the British people.”
Parliament is scheduled to vote on May’s withdrawal agreement Today.
May’s previous version of the exit plan lost by 230 votes in January. If Parliament doesn’t vote for this deal, lawmakers will have to vote on whether to leave without a deal in place or send may back to Brussels to ask for a deadline extension.
As for the U.S, experts say the unraveling of the European Union could bring more instability to the region.
The UK would be the first country to exit the European Union.
The deadline for the UK to leave the EU is March 29th.
