British MPs vote to take control of Brexit process

British MPs vote to take control of Brexit process
The UK parliament took control of government efforts to leave the European Union (EU) by passing an amendment on March 25 that gave itself the power to vote on alternatives to the government’s Brexit plan. The attempt came as Prime Minister Theresa May prepared for a last-ditch effort to persuade lawmakers to support her withdrawal plan, which has been rejected twice.

UK lawmakers voted 329 to 302 on Monday to give themselves the right to vote on alternative options to Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal.

May admitted there was ‘not sufficient support’ to make another quick attempt to push the deal through, though she might try again this week, according to British media reports.

A constitutional showdown is feared in the United Kingdom as lawmakers stepped into the Brexit process and try to chalk out an alternative path.

The parliament will hold the non-binding votes on March 27 to determine the level of support for various Brexit options, which may include revoking Brexit, holding another referendum, supporting May's divorce deal, backing a ‘no deal’ Brexit, or supporting a ‘Norway plus’ deal, which would keep the United Kingdom in the EU Single Market.

The government said the outcome set a ‘dangerous, unpredictable precedent for the future’. It cautioned that ‘any options considered must be deliverable in negotiations with the EU’.

Opposition leader and Labour Party chief Jeremy Corbyn congratulated lawmakers on reclaiming control and termed the government's approach to Brexit an ‘abject failure’. (DS)
