Britain’s parliament on Tuesday has rejected Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal, which has triggered a no-confidence vote in her government and plunging its plans to leave the EU into further confusion.
The confidence vote is expected to be held at about 19:00 GMT.
Member of the British parliament MPs voted 432 to 202 against Theresa May’s plan for taking Britain out of the European Union. It is being termed as the biggest parliamentary defeat for a government in modern British political history.
Theresa May has told MPs she will return to the Commons with an alternative plan next week, provided she survives the confidence vote.
“The House has spoken and this government will listen,” she said on Tuesday night, offering cross-party talks to determine a way forward.
The vote was called by main opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn following the government’s historic defeat over May’s Brexit deal with the European Union.
According to the BBC political correspondent Iain Watson, if the prime minister sees off the challenge, she will begin a series of meetings with “senior Parliamentarians” on Thursday.
But according to the latest media reports, there has been no offer of all-party PM Theresa May. She is not reaching out according to Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party.
Jeremy Corbyn accuses Theresa May of "acting in her narrow party interest, rather than the public interest" on #Brexit – saying her party is "fundamentally split on the issue"
