LONDON (Reuters) – The First british minister Theresa May announced on Wednesday that she was ready to leave her job sooner than she imagined to adopt the agreement of Brexit negotiated with the Europeans.
“It is necessary that this agreement be approved to succeed the Brexit”, has she declared to the Committee of 1922, an instance of the conservative Party, according to a statement released by his services.
“I’m ready to leave this job sooner than I imagined to do what is beneficial to our country and to our country.”
Elect conservatives had been a few moments earlier she had informed them that she would resign if the House of commons ratifies the agreement of Brexit concluded between London and Brussels, and endorsed at the end of November by the european leaders.
May “go away if the agreement passes,” said one of them, summing up the remarks of the chief british before the members of the committee, 1922, is comprised of all elected Tories with the exception of those holding ministerial functions.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, he added: “It suggests she will go after an agreement.”
“I heard very clearly what was the state of mind of the parliamentarians of the party,” insists Theresa May in its press release. “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.”
“THE RIGHT DECISION”
Twice already she has tried to ratify it. On 15 January, the text was rejected by 432 votes to 402. On 12 march, the margin was reduced, but the agreement has yet been rejected by 391 votes to 242. To overthrow and succeed his bet, the ruling british, therefore, needs to convince 75 parliamentarians.
Another elected who have participated in the exchanges noted that if the ruling british, who succeeded David Cameron at 10 Downing Street in July 2016, had not given the calendar, the impression was that it would be “reasonably soon”.
This announcement is the latest major reversal – in date – a soap opera, which multiplies the blows of the theatre since the british voters chose, by a little less than 52% of the vote to leave the EU in the referendum of June 23, 2016.
It occurs while the mp is ready to proceed to an indicative vote on the eight different options for the Brexit so, if they manage to find a consensus, then try to encourage the government to go this route.
Theresa May had already made a commitment to leave power before the next general elections, planned for 2022.
In agreeing to withdraw earlier, it increases the chances of the House of commons to ratify finally the negotiated agreement with the Europeans. She should submit to a third vote on Friday.
“It was inevitable, and I have the feeling that she has made the right decision,” commented the conservative member of parliament Pauline Latham at the end of the exchanges between May and the members of the committee, 1922.
The Brexit was initially set to 29 march.
Twenty-Seven, offering respite to London, have pushed back the date of divorce to the 12th of April if the british Parliament does not ratify the agreement or withdrawal or may 22, in the case where the House of commons ratifies finally this text for more than 580 pages.
