The British Prime Minister, Theresa May, on Thursday urged the deputies to "resolve" the blockade of the "brexit" "as soon as possible" in order to leave the European Union with an agreement.
The conservative leader appeared today in the House of Commons after having agreed on Wednesday with the EU a new extension of the process of leaving the community block, until October 31, a "compromise" halfway between the short extension by which he advocated France and the longest he preferred Germany.
"My priority is to comply with the 'brexit' and do it in an orderly manner, that does not alter the lives of the people, so I still believe that we must leave the European Union with an agreement as soon as possible," the premier said today. "
May described the negotiations with the other 27 members of the EU bloc in Brussels as "complicated" during the last extraordinary summit, where "many European partners share our deep frustration (...) about the current blockade".
"It is our national duty (to find a solution) as elected members of this House and nothing is more pressing or more vital today," said the Chief Executive.
"The options we face are slim and the timetable is clear, I think we must now hurry up in our efforts to find a consensus on an agreement that is in the national interest," Tory added. Parliament rejected its agreement on three occasions.
He also pointed out that his Executive continues to hold negotiations with the opposition Labor Party, which resumes today, in order to put an end to the situation of political blockade.
In this regard, he acknowledged that pairing with the opposition "is not the usual practice in British politics", although he argued that to achieve a "successful" agreement "a commitment by both parties will be required".
The mandate of the current European Commission ends in principle on October 31 and, therefore, London would not elect a new European Commissioner.
May had requested an extension until June 30, while the president of the European Council, Donald Tusk, was betting on a longer one, a maximum of one year, to allow the United Kingdom to leave the EU as soon as it is ready. that would mean that London would have to call European elections.
