Theresa May Withdrawal Agreement Vote

The third vote on the withdrawal agreement took place on 29 March 2019. [104] May has promised to resign as Prime Minister if the withdrawal agreement is adopted. [105] In the end, May`s agreement was again rejected, but with a lead lower than the previous two votes. [106] Two amendments were adopted. An amendment to a common commitment between the UK and the EU for citizens` rights was adopted without any division. An amendment to set the timetable for new wise votes in March 2019 was adopted at a range of 502 to 20. The main request (as amended) was then adopted without division. [89] “Of course, it wasn`t the result we wanted. But we still had a number of high-ranking Conservative colleagues who felt able to vote with the government today. They did it in higher numbers than before,” the source said. The Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, officially titled the UK`s withdrawal agreement from Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community. is a treaty signed on 24 January 2020 between the European Union (EU), Euratom and the United Kingdom (UK) [5] which sets the conditions for the UK`s withdrawal from the EU and Euratom. The text of the treaty was published on 17 October 2019[6] and is a renegotiated version of an agreement published six months earlier.

The previous version of the withdrawal agreement was rejected three times by the House of Commons, leading Queen Elizabeth II to accept Theresa May`s resignation as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and appoint Boris Johnson as the new Prime Minister on 24 July 2019. On the weekend before the amendment was voted on in the House of Commons, the leaders of the United Nations Group on Relations with the European Union signed a statement saying: “Members of all parties have already given valuable control to the EU withdrawal law and we have forced the government to make some concessions. But it won`t matter if we can`t really vote on the withdrawal agreement that the government is negotiating with the European Union. [20] [21] “Unfortunately, we will vote against it, yes, because, as the DUP said in its statement, it does not change the essential nature of the withdrawal agreement, which is unacceptable,” he said on BBC Radio 4`s Today on Wednesday. MPs on all sides of the Brexit split have vowed to pass Theresa May`s withdrawal deal if the government brings the bill to the House of Commons next month. The agreement was revised as part of the Johnson Department renegotiation in 2019. The amendments adjust about 5% of the text. [22] Theresa May on Friday cut the number of Tory MPs who were willing to vote against her Brexit deal, but she underestimated the intransigence of hard-line Eurosceptics within her own party. In the vote, 286 MEPs voted in favour of their agreement, 344 voted against and 4 abstained.
