"Brexit" extension approved
Procrastination to avoid a UK exit without agreement
The 27 leaders of the European Union have approved the possibility of extending the "Brexit" date to avoid an exit of the United Kingdom without agreement. The duration is still to be decided and the Permanent Representatives Committee will meet again on Friday October 25. Donald Franciszek Tusk, President of the European Council, intends to continue the consultations to see if procrastination can be granted by written procedure without a summit.
The request to postpone "Brexit" had already been formulated by the British government to Europe on October 19: Prime Minister Boris Johnson had been forced to passively accept the "Benn Act" a law passed last month by the British Parliament that forced the government to request a postponement of the exit in the event that an agreement was not approved by October 19.
