Now it's going to be a thriller! The UK Parliament postponed voting on Prime Minister Boris Johnson's new Brexit deal on Saturday. The latter still wants to enforce the deal.

With 322 to 306 votes, the deputies voted to adjourn the decision. Britain's exit from the EU, which is planned for October 31, is now on the brink.

Boris Johnson is now required by the "Ben Act" to request an extension of the deadline for leaving the EU.

However, immediately after the vote, the prime minister said that he "negotiate no delay with the EU" becomes. "No law forces me to do it."

How did the surprise come about?

At the last minute, an application from ex-Tory member Oliver Letwin was submitted. The Letwin Amendment provides for the decision on the agreement to be postponed until the ratification law has been passed. This law is necessary to enforce the Withdrawal Agreement.
