A big blow to British Prime Minister Theresa May has come from a United Kingdom court that ruled without a vote from Parliament Brexit process should not be initiated.


However, the government has taken the blow as a challenge and said to be appealing against the verdict to the Supreme Court.

If the Supreme Court rules the same a majority of lawmakers would have more influence over how the withdrawal process would be carried out. This may further delay the process and even could stop the process.

May had earlier said to be invoking Article 50 by the end of March next year. Her spokeswoman confirmed lately the government would stick to the timetable.

British people voted in favor of Brexit earlier this year in June and the government called the latest case as an attempt to overturn the referendum.

The spokeswoman said, “The country voted to leave the European Union in a referendum approved by act of Parliament… And the government is determined to respect the result of the referendum.”

The Supreme Court could hear the case early next month before a full bench of eleven judges.

Meanwhile, following the ruling the pound rose 0.8 percent climbing to $1.245.

Leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, said they respect the referendum and would not stop Brexit, but there should be more openness from May and her government.
