PM May, Parliament Is Standing In The Way Of Brexit.
United Kingdom Prime Minister May asked for an extension from the European Union till June 30th, they agreed to an extension to May 22. Observers, analysts are no more confident about Brexit taking place even with the extension. Theresa May attempt to blame the British Parliament for the chaos and failure.
The Brexit chaos in the United Kingdom continues at a fever pace despite the announcement by Dalia Grybauskaitė, the Lithuanian President to CNN that EU leaders have agreed in principle to grant an extension to the Brexit process that U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, has asked for, but not the requested June 30th deadline date. President Grybauskaitė is pointing to a May 22 deadline as is a "more secure" date for the extension, because European elections begin after that date. However, if Theresa May succeeds in passing her withdrawal agreement at the third attempt next week, "the discussion could be opened" for a technical extension until June 30th.
Despite the issue of the deadline date, when Grybauskaitė, who left the EU meeting room where talks were continuing, speaking to CNN was quoted when asked if a deal is done said…
"Not yet, we are in the middle of discussions. What I can say is that yes, we will be granting an extension."
The Lithuanian President told CNN that, as widely anticipated, the agreement will be conditional on the UK Parliament approving the withdrawal agreement...
"Today we will give only (a) promise to extend, but the final date and decision will be confirmed only conditionally if the UK parliament next week will vote for the deal which is agreed already.”
"If not, we will be in trouble – all of us. And again next Thursday, highly likely, we’re meeting for an extraordinary meeting."
