The heads of state and government of the remaining 27 EU States decided at their summit in Brussels on the night of Friday a short delay in Leaving. Originally, the Brexit for the 29. March provided. Now he could either be on 12. April or 22. May take place.
however, There are also other possibilities. A complete cancellation of a Brexit, a further extension on the 12. April, or a second Referendum. EU-great-grandson Donald Tusk said on Friday after the summit, that all further steps depended almost exclusively by the British Parliament and by the government in London.
The UK's exit on 22. In may, the day before the European elections, is the scenario in which the Exit runs in the UK from the EU according to the scenario of the exit contract. The British Prime Minister Theresa May would have to submit in the coming week the exit of the contract for the third Time, the British house of Commons and a majority win.
In this case, the UK would not participate in the European election, otherwise, would change, in fact, but by the end of 2020 little. The British were more in the internal market, would have to continue to pay for the EU, could not but participate in the voting in Brussels. However, it is considered unlikely that May get next week the majority of the votes.
The scenario of an exit of great Britain on the 12. April attacks, if May fail next week during the vote in the lower house and the Prime Minister should then pull the outlet without a contract (a"No-Deal scenario"). However, the UK's exit is at the 12. April in case a new vote to defeat Mays is no inevitability.
According to the summit decision, first, that the UK, in a further setback, the head of government to the 12. April explains what it wants. It is also conceivable that the UK measured to this point in time, with a more – generous – extension of time-limit and participation in the European elections, agrees.
In addition, the possibility that May attracts the notice of resignation of the country from the EU. In this case, the British would then also participate in the European election of 23. to 26. May participate in. The Brexit would be blown off. Until Friday afternoon the Petition had been registered with an Online for a withdrawal of the notice of resignation more than three million signatures.
may can not a strategy

At the summit in Brussels, acted May - and without concept. She spoke an hour and a half to the other 27 heads of state and government, could be said to but neither a strategy, formulate information about the next steps.
According to Reports, EU diplomats, but also between the representatives of the 27 EU-States again and again the raw nerves of. So there was a conflict on the open stage between the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, and EU Council President Tusk. Macron insisted, apparently, on the exit date 7. May, because the next day is a holiday in France and the chaotic consequences of the unregulated would be pushed Brexit for the French a day.More about

Tusk-favorite the 22. May. Merkel should have a Macron. You thought it was said to be irresponsible, that the President of France, was heading to a "No-Deal"scenario. With Tusk you got together: you should have him angeranzt, but please don't constantly interrupt. You should have also said: "It may be that you, the British don't need, we need (the EU)."
