Brexit – London High Court: it is not illegal to suspend parliament

Share Button

In a ruling Friday, the London Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit alleging it was illegal to suspend a session of the British Parliament.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently announced that his government will close its current session this month and announce a new program in mid-October, just two weeks before the current deadline for British membership (Brexit).
Johnson, both within the opposition and within the ruling Conservative Party, has been accused by many of seeking to limit the number of parliamentary days remaining before the Brexit deadline, in an attempt to prevent opponents of uninvolved Brexit from preventing disorganized exit.
However, the head of government has repeatedly denied this, 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.
