Members of the House of Commons, United Kingdom have just voted in favour of asking for a delay in negotiating the country’s exit from the European Union (EU).
They voted after a disagreement at the floor of the House and thereafter took a vote. Speaker John Becow announced the result of the ballot at 6:24 local time with pro-delay lawmakers defeating others with 412 to 202 votes.
With the result, the UK will now file a request for extension to reach a deal on BREXIT from the EU.
If approved by the EU, the development will enable the country delay working out a good deal for BREXIT for up to one year instead of just leaving with ‘no deal.’
