UK Will Not Leave EU on March 29 – Prime Minister

British Prime Minister Theresa May has said her country will not leave the European Union on March 29, as originally planned, but said the departure wouldn’t be delayed any further than June 30.

“Nearly three years have passed since the public voted to leave the European Union,” May said in a Wednesday address to the nation. “It was the biggest democratic exercise in our country’s history. I came to office on a promise to deliver on that verdict. In March 2017, I triggered the Article 50 process for the UK to exit the EU, and Parliament supported it overwhelmingly.”
