If the British Prime Minister Johnson's withdrawal policy is not approved by the British Parliament by the 19th, the British government will ask the EU to postpone the withdrawal from the European Union (EU), which is about to expire at the end of October. It turned out to be a policy. Reuters and others reported on the 4th that such a matter was written in a document submitted to the court by the British government in a lawsuit regarding withdrawal.
Mr. Johnson has professed the withdrawal at the end of October regardless of whether there is an agreement with the EU.
A document stating the postponement policy was issued by the government to a court in Scotland in northern England. In this case, the plaintiffs asked Mr. Johnson to comply with the postponement withdrawal law.
The law, which was enacted in September, will require the government to request the EU to postpone withdrawal until the end of January next year if the proposed withdrawal agreement with the EU, which defines the conditions for withdrawal, is not approved by Congress by October 19. ing.
A document issued by the government to the court says that the prime minister follows the law.
However, Johnson posted on Twitter on the 4th, “Do you agree again or not? There will be no postponement”, and once again showed the attitude of sticking to withdrawal at the end of October.
In the British media, Mr. Johnson makes a request for a postponement in accordance with the law, but at the same time, another possibility of sending another letter to the EU side saying "I do not want to postpone" is considered. Mr. Johnson presented a new proposed withdrawal condition on the 2nd, but it is unclear whether the EU will accept it. Even if the UK requests postponement, the decision will require the approval of all EU member states, and will be difficult. (London = its mountain history)
