Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom granted royal assent to the so-called Brexit bill, paving the way for the prime minister to trigger the country’s departure from the European Union, announced today British Parliament.
British Parliament approved on Monday the so-called “European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill, dealt with as a matter of urgency since 26 January, when the Supreme Court ruled that such a parliamentary procedure was necessary to activate Article 50 of the Treaty Of Lisbon.
With the activation of Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon, the two formal years of negotiations required for the departure of a European country from the European bloc are launched.
According to British media, Prime Minister wants to wait for the end of the celebrations on the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome next week to activate the “brexit”.
Once British Prime Minister Theresa May reports to Brussels, the response to the European Commission’s notification is expected to take place within 48 hours.
Among the first measures that May wants to negotiate with the 27 is the legal situation of the community living in the UK and the British who reside in other European countries.
In addition, the head of the Government has confirmed that the UK intends to leave the European single market in order to control immigration, one of the main arguments in the campaign for the European referendum held on 23 June.
The United Kingdom voted in favour of leaving the European bloc, although Scotland and Northern Ireland supported staying in the EU.
