UK: House of Commons delay vote on new Brexit deal
MPs vote in favor of an amendment forcing PM Johnson to seek for Brexit extension until related legislation is passed

LONDON (AA) – British lawmakers amended a new Brexit deal proposed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, delaying a vote on the deal on Saturday.

MPs passed the amendment submitted by a group of MPs led by Oliver Letwin by 322 votes to 306.

Johnson will be legally obliged to request a Brexit delay by 11pm today under the terms of Benn act after losing today’s vote.

Johnson said following the vote that he would “not negotiate a delay with the EU and neither does the law compel me to do so.”

He said he would bring a bill on deal to leve the EU to the parliament next week.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn welcomed the result.

“It is an emphatic decision by this house ...The prime minister must now comply with the law,” he said.

Johnson was aiming to pass his new deal reached with the EU officials and to depart the country from the block on Oct. 31.

The Conservative MPs left the House of Commons in a reaction to the latest defeat.
