PM May Proposes Two Brexit Votes For Parliament

According to Reuters, British Prime Minister Theresa May proposed a vote in parliament if her government's Brexit backup plan is rejected.

The prime minister will hold a vote in parliament on whether to leave the EU without a deal, or delay the Brexit deadline.

The proposal will include two votes, one which will debate the issue of no-deal, while the other will involve extending the EU's Article 50 negotiating period.

The European Union's Article 50 provides a nation with two years of negotiating a withdrawal agreement after submitting a withdrawal notice, and the United Kingdom's deadline is March 29th.

But the votes in parliament will not be held until March 12th.
