British Prime Minister Theresa May has requested that the European Union defer the date of the UK’s separation from the alliance until June 30, as indicated by a letter to European Council President Donald Tusk that was sent on Friday.
May has just verified one Brexit delay — right now slated for April 12 — to purchase time to pick up help for her Withdrawal Agreement, which British administrators have now dismissed multiple times.
What May wrote in her letter to the EU:
Asking to push back the extension until June 30.
The Brexit delay could end earlier if the House of Commons agrees to her Brexit deal before that date.
The UK will prepare to hold European Parliament elections if it is unable to exit the bloc before May 23.
“The government agrees that leaving with a deal is the best outcome.”
