Theresa May’s Brexit withdrawal deal is back in UK Parliament: Latest updates – CNN International

The UK government is bringing the Withdrawal Agreement back to Parliament for a third time on Friday. If the UK wants to secure a delay to Brexit until May 22, MPs must approve the deal.

However that’s easier said than done and despite the Prime Minister offering her resignation in order to get it over the line, she may still have insufficient votes.

Shortly after Friday’s motion was announced, the opposition Labour party confirmed it will once again vote against the agreement.

Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, Keir Starmer, said on Twitter: “What the Government is doing is not in the national interest and that’s why we will not support it tomorrow.”

And in another blow to May, the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) also said it too would not back the agreement on Friday.

“We will be voting against the Withdrawal Agreement because our concerns remain. We will continue to do what we can to get the best deal for Northern Ireland,” the DUP’s Westminster leader Nigel Dodds said Thursday

May’s minority government depends on the DUP’s 10 Members of Parliament to keep it in power, and at least some Conservative hardline Brexiteers are expected to take their cue from the DUP on which way to vote on the deal.
