New timetable for BrexitErika
The new Brexit timetable will postpone the severance of relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union until January 31, 2020, three months later than expected. This marks the third extension of the Brexit date.
Both parties have accepted that the extension is inevitable, and trust that the approval of this extra period will allow the United Kingdom to hold a general election to clarify the British Parliament’s position on Brexit.
The extension, approved by the EU-27 partners, allows the United Kingdom to remain in the EU until January 31, 2020, although it may exit earlier if the ratification process of the exit agreement is completed. The delay also means that London must appoint a representative to the new European Commission.
Whatever the outcome, uncertainty is inevitable. Whether or not an agreement is reached, much remains to be negotiated and decided during the transition period after the United Kingdom leaves the EU.
