Brexit deadlines have passed and exceeded, but it is now fair to say that the crunch time for the UK`s exit from the European Union is fast approaching. He said: “I think we will probably start these negotiations next week. We are not there yet. What I would say is that the British government understands only too well the need for an agreement in this area. I do not think the EU issue is inappropriate and the EU must also show a compromise to answer many British questions. The UK government and the other 27 EU member states approve the draft agreement. “We are striving to reach an agreement on this basis, which will allow a fresh start to our relations with the EU, which we have always wanted. We will continue to work hard to get them, because it is not possible to reach an agreement on another basis. On the British side, the assumption that the mid-November deadline, long debated by EU officials, is of little concern, given that Britain can ratify an agreement much faster than the continent. The agreement must go through the Westminster Parliament, but it does not need to be translated into several languages or needs votes in all Member States, as would be possible on the EU side. “We have worked hard to reach an agreement with the EU, but it must be one that respects the UK`s sovereignty,” a Downing Street spokesman told reporters on Thursday afternoon. EU leaders approve the postponement of the date of Brexit to 31 January 2020, or earlier, if the UK and European parliaments approve the withdrawal deal by then. The agreement is expected to be transformed into a legal text, translated and ratified by parliaments on both sides, all before the upcoming deadline of 31 December.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson wins the British general election. It is therefore likely that the Brexit deal will soon be adopted. If the British Parliament approves the agreement, the European Parliament can vote on it in January. The United Kingdom (United Kingdom) left the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020. A transitional period is now in effect until 31 December 2020. During this period, the UK will have to comply with all EU rules and legislation. For businesses and the public, virtually nothing will change. After the transition period, there will be changes, whether or not an agreement is reached on the new relationship between the UK and the EU.
The British Parliament passes a law requiring the UK government to ask for a postponement of Brexit if there is no deal with the EU by 19 October 2019. EU officials say an extension of the deadline makes it almost impossible to ratify Brussels by the end of the year. The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020 at midnight (23:00 GMT). A transitional period is now in effect until 31 December 2020.
