British PM Theresa wins parliament’s backing to renegotiate Brexit deal

LONDON – The British Prime Minister Theresa May has won the parliament’s backing to renegotiate her Brexit deal.

The Members of the Parliament voted in favour of a non-binding measure that rejects the United Kingdom leaving the European Union without a Withdrawal Agreement.

The Members also voted on a string of amendments to Prime Minister May’s plan to change the direction of Brexit.

In her speech, Prime Minister Theresa May urged MPs to vote in favour of it, to give her a mandate to return to Brussels and re-open negotiations in order to secure a legally binding change.

Meanwhile, the European Union has said that it will not change the legal text agreed with the UK Prime Minister.

A spokesman of the EU, Donald Tusk said the deal was not open for renegotiation while French President Emmanuel Macron said it was the best agreement possible.
