Boris Johnson suspending UK parliament until October

PanARMENIAN.Net - The British parliament will be suspended at the end of business on Monday, September 9 until the middle of next month, the spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson said, according to Reuters.

A bill to prevent Britain leaving the European Union on October 31 without a deal by forcing Johnson to seek a delay is due to become law on Monday but the spokesman said the government would not seek any extension to the deadline.

The prime minister will not sanction any more pointless delays to Brexit, the spokesman added, and lawmakers should vote for a snap election which Johnson will call for later on Monday to resolve the issue.
