Monday’s debate will end the current session of the British Parliament, with the Queen’s speech on the new government program beginning on October 14, the London Prime Minister’s Office said on Monday.

Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently announced that his government will close its parliamentary session this month and announce a new program in mid-October, just two weeks before the current deadline for British membership (Brexit).
The date for the end of this session has so far been uncertain, but a legislative debate is coming to an end, according to a Downing Street spokesman, after Monday’s debate.
Johnson has been accused by many in the opposition and within the Conservative Party of restricting the number of parliamentary days remaining before the Brexit deadline of 31 October, in an effort to prevent opponents of an unbroken Brexit from preventing the European Union from leaving.
However, the head of government has repeatedly denied these allegations, saying the move has nothing to do with Brexit, with the aim of announcing a brand new government program with central goals such as public health service (NHS) and infrastructure development.
Civil activists have also filed legal action against the suspension of the parliamentary session, but the London Supreme Court ruled last Friday that Johnson had acted in accordance with current parliamentary law when he initiated the ruling of the governor to suspend the parliamentary session and begin a new legislative season.
However, the High Court allowed appellants to appeal against the order to the British Supreme Court.
On Monday night, Johnson’s proposal to hold early elections in Britain on October 15 will be before the lower house again.
The motion, which requires a two-thirds majority, was rejected by the opposition last week.
Opposition parties fear, in the first instance, that if the Conservative Party, which currently has no majority in the lower house, wins the election, Johnson would repeal with Parliament a new law prohibiting the United Kingdom from leaving the European Union in an unorganized manner Brexit on the October 31 deadline.
The main force of the opposition, the Labor Party’s finalized law on Friday, is that unless Parliament agrees to a new Brexit agreement by 19 October, and that Britain’s EU membership would be terminated without agreement, Boris Johnson it should initiate a postponement of three months for the EU until 31 January 2020.
The law even predetermined in what letter Johnson would ask the President of the European Council, composed of EU heads of state and government, to postpone Brexit.
The unanimous decision of the European Council is required to approve further, the third postponement of exit.
However, Boris Johnson has repeatedly stated in recent days that under no circumstances is he willing to initiate a postponement of exit from the European Union, and the United Kingdom will definitely leave the EU on 31 October, whether there is a new Brexit agreement or not. .
Johnson said the mid-October election date is important because it could lift the current parliamentary stalemate ahead of the crucial EU summit on Brexit, which begins on October 17.
If, as expected, the prime minister’s proposal is voted down by the opposition again on Monday night, it will no longer be possible to hold elections before the end of November under British electoral law.
