Some British deputies from the Conservative Party, unsatisfied with Brexit treaty, may back the document, if Prime Minister Theresa May determines the date of her resignation, The Times reports.
May is the leader of the Conservative party and has 314 deputies in 650-memner House of Commons. To ratify the EU withdrawal agreement, she will need about 320 votes.
Yesterday, May delivered speech in the Parliament convincing deputies to back the treaty. One of conservative deputies officially announced that he submitted a vote of nonconfidence to the Prime Minister as a party leader. It is already a 25th letter out of 48 required.
“Mrs. May’s promise to resign immediately after March 29 will help calm down Tor, including high-ranking ministers, who want UK to insist on concluding a trade agreement with EU except from the one, which Canada has”, the edition writes quoting the government sources.
On December 11, the deputies of the House of Commons will conduct voting under Brexit treaty with EU.
