UK parliament debates Brexit options

LONDON (Rahnuma) : British parliament is voting Wednesday evening on a series of alternatives to Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal, which has been rejected by lawmakers twice previously.

The voting will take place at 7 p.m. local time to see which options have a parliamentary majority behind them in a bid to break the Brexit impasse in Westminster.

As the results will not be binding for the government, May is expected to bring her deal back to the House of Commons for a third “meaningful vote”.

She told lawmakers during a question session earlier on Wednesday that meaningful vote would be “this week”.

A government spokesperson later said “we will only seek to bring back a meaningful vote when we believe we have a realistic prospect of success.”

May also made it clear that she will not necessarily accept any Brexit plan that will possibly emerge from Wednesday’s indicative votes process.
