Prime Minister Theresa May has said that if her Brexit deal is not approved a longer extension may be necessary.March 14, 2019
Islamabad 14th March 2019 (Roshan Pakistan ) European Council President Donald Tusk has said he will appeal to EU leaders “to be open to a long extension” of the Brexit deadline, if the UK needs to rethink its strategy and get consensus.
His intervention came as UK MPs were set to vote on seeking to postpone the 29 March deadline to 30 June.
EU leaders meet in Brussels on 21 March and they would have the final say.
After two resounding defeats in the House of Commons, she will make another attempt to push her Withdrawal Agreement with the EU through next week.
All 27 other EU nations would have to agree to an extension, and Mr Tusk, who is the bloc’s summit chairman, will hold talks with several leaders ahead of next week’s Brussels meeting.
While European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has insisted that any postponement “should be complete before the European elections” at the end of May, Mr Tusk made clear a longer delay was on the cards.
