"Our condition to exclude an exit without agreement is now fulfilled", with the postponement of the date of Brexit granted by the European Union, said the head of Labor, Jeremy Corbyn.
The Labor Party, which has already refused early elections three times, is preparing to vote in favor of Prime Minister Boris Johnson's request. The main opposition party in the United Kingdom has agreed to hold an early election on Tuesday (October 29th) that will be attempted by the head of the British government in the day, his chief Jeremy Corbyn announced.
"Our condition to exclude an exit without agreement is now fulfilled", with the postponement of the date of Brexit granted by the European Union, said Mr Corbyn in front of senior members of the party, promising to launch "The most ambitious and radical campaign for real change". Labor, fiercely opposed to leaving the European Union without agreement (no deal)wanted to wait for Brussels' confirmation of the Brexit postponement until 31 January 2020.
Boris Johnson needed the support of Labor MPs, the second largest political force in the House of Commons, to get early elections on December 12. Last Friday, he had again asked Westminster to take a stand on this issue, hoping to reshuffle Parliament's cards and break the Brexit deadlock. "This Parliament has had its day," had estimated the one who presents himself as the spearhead of "Brexit do or die" (whatever the cost). But without Labor's approval, the Prime Minister had failed again: his motion should have convinced two-thirds of voters in the House of Commons (434 votes), but only 299.
