MAY OVERCOMES MOTION OF CONFIDENCE OF HER OWN PARTY

London / The British Prime Minister, the conservative Theresa May, has survived a motion of confidence called by her own party by 200 votes against 117, and she will continue to seek new concessions in Brussels to facilitate the approval in the British Parliament of her “Brexit” agreement.”

The head of the government assured she has “listened” to the deputies who voted against her and promised to try to obtain additional “legal and political guarantees” in the summit of community leaders which begins this Thursday.

May had to postpone on Tuesday the vote on the pact she reached with the European Union (EU) in the fear that dozens of their own deputies will rebel against her. Now she faces the challenge of returning to the House of Commons before January 21 with a new text that gets majority support.

The Eurosceptic faction of the Conservatives, which opposes the agreement and triggered the motion of confidence against her, however, after the vote they warned parliamentary arithmetic continues to play against her.

May’s victory means that her party can’t submit her to a new confidence vote in the next twelve months, although she could face a motion of censure against his government if the Labour opposition decides to present it in Parliament.

In a closed-door speech before her deputies before the confidence vote, the prime minister promised not to run for the next elections, which are currently scheduled for 2022.
