Donald Tusk i Theresa May

Theresa May poslala je Europskoj uniji zahtjev za daljnjim odgodom Brexita do 30. lipnja, piše BBC.

Velika Britanija trenutačno bi trebala napustiti EU 12. travnja, a saborski zastupnici još nisu odobrili sporazum o povlačenju.

Premijer je predložio da bi, ako britanski zastupnici na vrijeme odobre dogovor, Velika Britanija mogla otići prije izbora za Europski parlament 23. svibnja.

Ali rekla je da će se Velika Britanija pripremiti za kandidiranje kandidata na tim izborima, u slučaju da ne postignu sporazum.

Meanwhile the BBC’s Europe editor Katya Adler has been told by a senior EU source that European Council President Donald Tusk will propose a 12-month “flexible” extension to Brexit, with the option of cutting it short, if the UK Parliament ratifies a deal.

No, čelnici EU-a sljedeći će se tjedan jednoglasno morati složiti s njegovim prijedlogom. Premijer napisao gospodinu Tusku to request the extension ahead of Wednesday’s meeting.

She requested an extension to the end of June at the last summit, which took place shortly before 29 March – the date the UK was originally meant to have left the EU.

But she was offered a short delay to 12 April – the date by which the UK must say whether it intends to take part in the European Parliamentary elections – or until 22 May if UK MPs had approved the withdrawal deal negotiated with the EU. They voted it down po treći put prošli tjedan.

In her letter, she says the “impasse cannot be allowed to continue”, as it was “creating uncertainty and doing damage to faith in politics” in the UK.

She said if cross-party talks with the Labour Party could not establish “a single unified approach” in the UK Parliament – MPs would be asked to vote on a series of options instead which the government “stands ready to abide by”.

She wrote that the UK proposed an extension to the process until 30 June and “accepts the European Council’s view that if the United Kingdom were still a member state of the European Union on 23 May 2019, it would be under a legal obligation to hold the elections”.

To this end, she says the UK is already “undertaking the lawful and responsible preparations for this contingency”.

But it said if a withdrawal agreement could be ratified by Parliament before then “the government proposes that the period should be terminated early” so the UK can leave the EU before then, and cancel preparations for the European Parliamentary elections.
