Theresa May’s tenure as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom has turned out to be quite unpopular. UK PM Theresa May’s Brexit Deal has been rejected for the third time by the Members of the Parliament (MPs). A number of demonstrators stood outside the House of Commons while this deal was being voted upon.
Let us take a closer look at Theresa May’s Brexit Deal and what happened in the House of Commons.
UK PM Theresa May’s Brexit Deal Suffers Third Defeat
The vote for the Withdrawal Agreement saw 286 MPs voting in favour of the agreement, while 344 of them voted against it. This means that Theresa May’s Brexit Deal got defeated by a majority of 58. In the past, majorities of 230 and 149 were recorded against the bill.
Emergency EU Summit Called over Rejection of Brexit Deal
Now that UK PM Theresa May has failed to come up with a deal for the third time, emergency measures are being taken by the European Union. Donald Tusk, the President of the European Council has called an emergency EU Summit on the 10th of April. He Tweeted:
In view of the rejection of the Withdrawal Agreement by the House of Commons, I have decided to call a European Council on 10 April. #Brexit
What Happens Next?
After UK PM Theresa May failed to get a majority vote for the Brexit Deal, it is possible that a lengthy delay may take place between now and another decision on Brexit. However, over the days to follow, UK is likely to exit the European Union without a deal i.e. a ‘No Deal’ Brexit may take place on the 12th of April!
