May underscore the common objective is to avoid a disorderly exit the EU without an agreement. The British Parliament should accept the withdrawal of the contract in the short term, but still in favour of EU Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker for a further postponement of the Brexits just under six weeks until the 22. May.
Juncker made but this is dependent on the fact that even before the 12. April a stable majority in London for exit from the EU come contract. This is the day for which it is provided, according to the current state-of-the Brexit. Two days before - so on Wednesday of next week - to decide on a special EU summit, as the Brexit.
The British house of Commons has the May agreed with the EU Treaty, the Outlet already rejected three Times - but so far not on a Brexit-variant. The Blockade, had announced the head of government on Tuesday evening to request a further short displacement of the leaving the EU and to seek, together with the leader of the opposition Corbyn after a cross-party compromise.

The hope is, therefore, on the 22. May withdraw with the Treaty of the EU. Then a transition period until the end of 2020, could enter into force, in order to avoid Chaos. The government confirmed that it has asked the election Commission as a precautionary measure, with the preparations for participation in the European elections.
attitude of the EU countries are unclear
may's announcement is turn a dramatic return. So far, she had refused to make concessions to the Opposition. Because this is a softer Form of the Brexits.

April is midnight now, a very likely scenario.“
On the EU side, it is still unclear whether all 27 EU heads of state and heads of government would approve a deferral unanimously. Skeptical Federal Chancellor of Austria, Sebastian expressed from the conservative ÖVP. "From the current point of view, there is absolutely no reason for a deadline extension, because of the mess in the UK has not changed," said Kurz in Vienna. "There is no clear path, the majority is capable of in the British house of Commons."
According to the Chairman of the foreign Affairs Committee in the Bundestag, Norbert Röttgen, should insist with the EU on a long extension of the deadline with participation of the British in the European elections. In the current Situation of institutional deadlock, it was pointless to ask for a further short-Brexit-deferral, tweeted the CDU politician.
