British PM May Trigger Article 50 For Brexit Without Parliament Vote

Citing a source the Daily Telegraph writes the PM is committed to result of referendum of June that says 52 percent of people want Britain to leave European Union (EU) amid all the legal challenges that prevents the process to be implemented without a parliamentary vote.

It is learned the Mishcon de Reya law firm may challenge the May government in court rationalizing Article 50 of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty cannot be triggered without a parliamentary vote.

If the parliament sits for debate and vote, there are chances of preventing the process of exit of Britain from US as most of the members of Parliament’s lower House of Commons had earlier campaigned against Brexit including May.

It is said after the triggering of Article 50 the process would take about two years to make Britain exit from EU.

Meanwhile, May had earlier said the Article 50 would be triggered in 2017 and not this year as the new government need some for the shaping up of Britain’s exit objectives.

Former head of the civil service, Gus O’Donnell, said the country could remain a part of a changed EU.

He added, “It very much depends what happens to public opinion and whether the EU changes.”
