In a major blow to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Britain’s highest court ruled Tuesday that his decision to suspend Parliament for five weeks in the crucial countdown to the country’s Brexit deadline was illegal.
Boris Johnson could soon be forced to resign as prime minister. Here’s why;
Johnson became prime minister in July on a promise of taking the UK out of the European Union on October 31 with or without a deal.
But last week that plan collapsed after opposition members of Parliament passed a law designed to force Johnson to seek a three-month delay to Brexit.
Johnson immediately tried to overturn this by forcing an early general election before Britain’s planned exit date. However, opposition parties will on Monday vote to veto Johnson’s request when he makes it for a second time.
Another vote is due to be held on Monday, after Boris Johnson’s visit to Farmleigh House, Dublin.
OPPOSITION PARTIES IN the UK have agreed to block Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s request for a snap general election until a no-deal Brexit has been prevented.
Johnson is to table a second motion to dissolve parliament on Monday, after a vote on Wednesday failed to reach the required two-thirds majority (298 ayes to 56 noes).
Yesterday Johnson said yet againthat he didn’t want an election: “… But frankly I don’t see any other way. It’s the only way to get this thing moving.”
“Boris Johnson is on the run,” Plaid Cymru leader Liz Saville Roberts told Sky News.
Boris Johnson’s brother Jo was “torn between family loyalty and the national interest” in the latest blow for the PM//BY:
