Prime Minister Theresa may urged Parliament “to accept the decision of the people”, that is to approve the country’s withdrawal from the European Union. This statement may during a business trip to India appealed to MPs and peers who oppose withdrawal from the EU, reports The Financial Times.
Earlier, London’s High court ruled that the procedure of exit from the EU must pass a preliminary vote in Parliament.
Mei warned that if the appeal of the government will be dismissed in the High court of London, and the government will be forced to wait for the approval from the Parliament — Britain would ultimately get the worst scenario.
The Prime Minister noted that she finds a purpose in the country and the EU: “the Result [of the referendum] was clear. He’s legitimate,” she said.
“We need to send our forces to gain the best outcome for the country,” — said may. “It means to stick to the plan and time frame to cope with the work on the development and discussion of strategies, and not to put on the table all our cards — it is not in the national interest,” concluded may.
Earlier, on 3 November, the High court in London ruled that the UK government is not allowed to start the formal process of leaving the EU, that is, to give effect to article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.
According to article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, the application for withdrawal filed by the country “in accordance with its own constitutional requirements”, but the UK has no codified Constitution, say the plaintiffs of the court. In their opinion, a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary form of government such a decision must pass the approval of Parliament, as in 1973 joined the EU, Britain has incorporated part of the European rights into domestic law. With exit from the EU, these laws will disappear, which requires the decision of the Parliament, concluded the judge.
The government has appealed the court decision, consideration is expected in early December, according to Reuters.
