May want to meet on Tuesday to discuss the Brexit Deal with the Dutch head of government Mark Rutte (09.00 a.m.) and German Chancellor Angela Merkel (13.00). The British government 10 Downing Street announced on Monday evening in London.
May had previously cancelled the Tuesday evening's planned vote in the British Parliament about the Brussels negotiated Brexit agreement. A new date you are not called first. You first want to lead renegotiations. More than changes in the Wording, you should expect to receive.
As the most difficult hurdle in the agreement, the Backstop, the guarantee that the Brexit no new border controls between the UK's Northern Ireland and a member of the EU Ireland will need to be introduced. Otherwise, a resumption of the conflict in the EX-civil war is feared region. The regulation stipulates that the UK as a Whole should remain in the European customs Union, until the Problem is solved by a new agreement. Northern Ireland must also comply with rules of the internal market.
However, there is deep and widespread concern, said May on Monday in the Parliament. You continue to believe in the agreement. "And I think that in this house a majority in favour can be won, if I can get the additional reinsurance to Backstop question," said the head of government. You have received in your telephone conversations with his counterparts from the EU signals that indicated a willingness to talk.
European Council President Donald Tusk called for Thursday a summit of the 27 remaining countries of the EU. You are not going to negotiate the Deal new, he wrote in the short message service Twitter. "But we are ready to discuss how the ratification can be done in the UK." Also, a Commission spokeswoman in Brussels confirmed: "This Deal is the best Deal and the only Deal."
Tusk's spokesman added that it was in contact with the British side and to discuss further action. Tusk Advisory is also with the EU heads of state and government on the preparation for Thursday. For Thursday and Friday, an EU is already scheduled at the summit, the also May. The Meeting of the 27 without the United Kingdom has now been added.
Permanently in the EU Orbit?
The critic in Parliament fear that the UK, with the Backstop is to be permanently in Orbit of the EU. The Northern Irish Protestant party, the DUP, of the Mays minority government depends, and refuses any special treatment for their province categorically. "The Backstop must go", tweet DUP Leader, Arlene Foster.
It is considered unlikely that May be possible to make purely cosmetic Changes to the Brexit agreement, a sufficient change of mood in the British Parliament.
On the 29. March 2019 is about to leave the UK, the EU. Should be ratified, there was no agreement, could leave the country unregulated – with chaotic consequences for the economy and many other areas of life. But in the meantime, to also not be excluded that there is a new election or a second Brexit Referendum. (chk/sda)
