LONDON (Reuters) – Theresa May has proposed on Wednesday to renounce his function of Prime minister if the withdrawal plan negotiated with Brussels was finally adopted by the House of commons, trying to get the support of dozens of voices that he was lacking in the conservative Party, its own political formation.

If the departure of the leader is not of a nature to modify the terms of the agreement, on the other hand might offer the eurosceptics a margin wider in the negotiations that could open up to and then draw the framework of future relations between Great Britain and the european Union.

“I felt what was the mood of the party,” said Theresa May in a meeting of conservative mps.

“I know that there is a desire for a new approach and a new direction – in the second phase of the negotiations of the Brexit, and I will not interfere.”

“I’m ready to leave this job sooner than I imagined to do what is beneficial to our country and to our country.”

Several members of parliament eurosceptics have announced that they would support finally the withdrawal agreement, but their volte-face might not be enough since The democratic unionist Party (DUP) in Northern Ireland has indicated that it will not support the withdrawal agreement negotiated by Theresa May and the european Union, since it does not guarantee the integrity of the United Kingdom.

Invited to speak on Wednesday evening, meps approved a text confirming the report of the Brexit while rejecting then the eight options that were offered.

The Parliament is now waiting to be contacted a third time by the government to take a decision on the withdrawal agreement, even if the president of the House of Commons has warned that it would not allow the vote unless the terms of the text to be changed substantially
