What is happening in the Parliament?

PM Johnson will present his 'great new deal' for Britain's divorce from the European Union in front of UK lawmakers on October 18. Earlier the Parliament had voted in the majority for a delay in Brexit which according to PM Johnson is due on October 31 so that the country can shift its priorities onto other things. During the weekend session in Parliament, the UK PM has implored the legislators to ratify the deal which was decided on October 17 between the EU leaders and the UK during the EU summit. Moreover, Boris Johnson has also said that the lawmakers should come together as “democrats” to end this feud which has created uncertainty in the country since 2016.
