(Video) Rajya Sabha TV (RSTV) World Panorama: New Brexit Deal
Topic: New Brexit Deal
The UK Parliament sat on a Saturday for the first time in 37 years to try and get Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Brexit deal agreed. However the planned vote on Johnson's Brexit deal was pre-empted when MPs adopted an amendment which effectively requires the PM to ask for a third extension to its planned departure. The primary aim of the amendment is to make sure that Britain can't leave the EU on 31 October without legislation in place. By law, Johnson now has to ask the EU for another extension, but he insists he won't do this. He says he'll introduce legislation to leave at the end of the month, giving MPs a choice of his deal or no deal.
