During the evening's discussions lay four different dates for a british exit on the table. Both Theresa Mays request a withdrawal on 30 June, but also three dates discussed within the EU member states; in the beginning of may (i.e. before the EU-elections on 23 may), the 31 december in the year to 31 march 2020.
a fifth, writes Reuters citing EU diplomats.
the Decision was to give Theresa May more time than she had asked for. The uk will now have until 31 October to come to an agreement that the british parliament can unite around. In addition, there should be a review of the situation on 30 June – the date of Theresa May herself had asked of the EU.
After the news got Theresa May to go back to the mötesbyggnaden to meet with European council president Donald Tusk. After the request for a few changes in wording, she gave the green light just before two o'clock the night of Thursday.
Tusk confirmed that the EU-countries and the united kingdom had agreed in a tweet at 01.57:https://twitter.com/eucopresident/status/1116128110557134848
According to Sky News, the decision means that it is time for a second referendum.
an extension of the Uk's withdrawal was the president of the French republic Emmanuel Macron, who criticized the british for wanting to have an extension while at the same time, according to Macron, the lack of a plan for how to proceed. France has also pointed out that the date for withdrawal has been determined by the british themselves – the 29 march 2019. A date that has already passed.
The position continued to France to claim during Wednesday night discussions.

France press, the other member states through the several statements from, among others, Emmanuel Macrons spokesperson who among other things made clear that a hard Brexit would be preferable instead to have a trilskande the Uk remaining within the EU.
with the Macron, and France was Germany chancellor Angela Merkel, who instead wanted to give the Uk more time, time to the 31 december, on themselves to reach an agreement.
the return to London with an extension makes it likely to be as easily curtailed. In order to bring about extension, France has demanded that the united kingdom refrain from interfering in the important EU issues in the period leading up to the exit. How this part of the evening's decision looks was just before the clock 01 still unclear.
In a late draft statement which was leaked during Wednesday evening was to the british in return for an extension ”shall refrain from any types of actions that can damage” the EU and its goals, ”especially when it comes to the decision-making process”. This is to avoid the Uk, as some critics said, to be a trojan horse in the EU.
also the Uk is losing its place in the European commission, i.e. the EU's government, which is the body responsible for drawing up the legislative proposals. A place which is today held by sir Julian King. Sweden's minister for EU affairs Hans Dahlgren dismissed the proposal in an interview on Wednesday night.
"If the Uk set up in the EU elections will also have a commissioner," said Dahlgren to CNN.
the anxiety is huge over also another question: what happens if Theresa May choose to leave his post or if she is voted out at any election during the extension period?
– Then we do not know who can become the new prime minister and what the person can do, " said first vice president of the european Parliament Mairead McGuinness, in an interview with CNN before Wednesday's vote.
Now go, therefore, Theresa May back to London for further negotiations on the home front. Already on Thursday, continues Theresa Mays talks with the leader of the opposition Jeremy Corbyn in an attempt to find an agreement that can be voted on in parliament.
Wednesday night, Labour's proposals for a customs union with the EU, where the Uk has the opportunity to affect the future agreements, are seen as ”credible and possible to deliver” of the Irish prime minister, mr Leo Varadkar.
But the road seems to be closed by the Tories. Late on Wednesday night, foreign minister Jeremy Hunt that a customs union would not work for a large economy like the Uk's.https://twitter.com/jeremycorbyn/status/1116047567941509120
