Britain has asked for the postponement of the October 31 deadline to exit the EU. The request for an extension was due to the delay in voting by U.K lawmakers on Saturday on Brexit issue.
This is the third time that Britain has requested the delay of the deadline. Donald Tusk, the EU Council President, received the letter for postponement. He states that he would take counsel from EU leads regarding what to do with Britain’s request.
Boris Johnson, the prime minister of Britain, has stated that he opposes such delay for Brexit. He has said that such extension destroys the interest and relationship of UK and EU partners.
Hence, the prime minister did not personally sign the extension letter, as per the media reports.
