Borris Johnson proposes another Parliament suspension; seeks Queen’s approval

The United Kingdom is set to see another suspension of its parliament just days after the Supreme Court had reversed the suspension. If it gets the approval fo the Queen, the suspension would take effect on October 8th.

According to a report in Politico, Prime Minister intended to ask the Queen for a suspension for the shortest time possible. This is with a goal of bringing a fresh legislative agenda when the Parliament reconvenes on October 14th.

The previous attempt by the government to suspend the parliament was from September 10th to October 14th. A move which had led many MPs to file a case questioning the legality of the suspension.

Many speculations had floated around regarding the reasoning of the government behind the suspension of the parliament. While some thought it was routine others thought it was a way to protect the government from any further discussions on Brexit.

The fresh attempt at the suspension of the UK parliament will provide the government with an opportunity to outline its policies to the parliament. Boris Johnson had assumed power after Theresa May had resigned as the Prime Minister.

Since assuming power, Johnson has faced massive challenges in the UK Parliament and has failed to unite the country which has seen deep divisions since the Brexit Referendum in 2016. In the Parliament, Johnson has lost six votes since assuming office and has a major hurdle in the Brexit negotiations since the Parliament had passed a law forcing the Government to seek an extension if an agreement is not met by October 19th.
