BRITISH PARLIAMENT DEBATES TODAY THE LAW ABOUT BREXIT

British Parliament today debates for the first time the so-called “brexit” law or exit from the United Kingdom of the European Union.

 


This bill will authorize the British Government to activate Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon to negotiate the withdrawal approved in a referendum whose results (52 percent in favor of withdrawal) were the cause of the resignation of David Cameron (advocate of the stay) as prime minister

Coinciding with the parliamentary debate, The Times publishes that the current Prime Minister Theresa May will activate the “brexit” next March 9, coinciding with the European summit in Malta.

The head of the Government has indicated until now that she will activate the process before the end of March, but yesterday, according to the newspaper, the government informed the House of Lords (Upper House) that she wants the bill to be approved on 7 March.

The parliamentarians will continue with the session on Wednesday and, after the analysis of amendments in committee, the initiative will be put to a vote on February 8, before moving to the House of Lords.

British government drafted this legislative initiative after the Supreme Court, the highest court in the UK, ruled last week that the government needs parliamentary approval before activating Article 50.

It is a short text that only requests the approval of the Parliament to undertake its divorce with Brussels and that will have the support of the conservative majority in the House, although the opposition groups have submitted numerous amendments to the text.

The Labor leader, Jeremy Corbyn, imposed the highest degree of discipline on the MPs of his party, the main opposition in the United Kingdom, to vote in favour of the bill, which has led protests and resignations in their ranks.

Members of the Multi-Party Commission on Human Rights have proposed that guarantees be included to protect the rights of community members living in the United Kingdom, while the Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) has requested a clause allowing Scotland to remain in the EU if the Government does not reach a satisfactory agreement with the European Commission.
