European Council President Donald Tusk said he will ask for another 90-day extension for Britain’s exit from the EU to avoid a no-deal scenario, after Parliament failed to approve the timetable for a negotiated departure.
The previous Brexit deadline of October 31 should be moved to January 31, 2020, Tusk said on Tuesday.
While Parliament approved Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s negotiated exit in a 329-299 vote earlier in the day, the “programme motion” to fast-track it through all the stages of the House of Commons failed with 308 votes in favor and 322 against, just minutes later.
