The process in London has also ended, today's vote in the Eurocamara concludes the parliamentary ratification of this agreement and will end almost three years of negotiation of divorce in which the biggest obstacle has been the opposition in the British House of Commons, where the agreement was rejected on up to three occasions.
Finally, after a renegotiation of the agreement between London and Brussels and an election last December 12, the British Parliament concluded the ratification of the agreement during the month of January.
The green light of the Eurocamara was the penultimate step in Brussels so that the United Kingdom could leave the EU with an agreement, and after this favorable vote there is only the adoption of the text by the Council, which will happen between Thursday and Friday and where there should be no obstacle to approval by simple majority.
After the vote, the president of the European Parliament will host a farewell ceremony in Parliament itself with the British deputies, who participate today and tomorrow in their last plenary session of the Eurocamara. . (tagsToTranslate) vote (t) brexit (t) parliament
