The British Parliament passed the final decision on the country’s withdrawal from the European Union. The bill, which regulates brexit, was approved by 494 deputies of the House of Commons. A little more than one hundred representatives of authorities voted against. Recall that a legislative act was studied at the third reading.
Before the final vote, some members would like to make further amendments to the document. But none of them has not been accepted by the majority.
This act has yet to be approved by the House of Lords. But, according to the close sources, this won’t be a problem.
The deputies consider that the approval of both chambers will be reached before the EU summit, which is scheduled for early March. And then the British Prime Minister will receive the legal right to initiate a formal process to withdrawal the state from the European Union.
In the summer of 2016, a referendum was held in Great Britain. More than half of the inhabitants of Foggy Albion (51.9%) voted in favor of the country’s exit from the EU. This process is called “brexit” (from the English words: Britain + exit)
