United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May was seeking to compromise her Brexit deal with the main opposition Labour Party as she, on Sunday, admitted that Brexit will not get passed through the parliament without the backing of the Labour Party, amid Brexit deadlock.
According to ANI news reports, May asserted her Brexit deal which was negotiated with the European Union has been thrice rejected till date by the British parliament, and that there was no chance of Brexit to get approval under its current form.
In an official statement released on Sunday, May was quoted by CNN as saying, “Given that parliament has also made clear it will oppose a no-deal Brexit, the only way to secure a deal was through a compromise with Labour.”
She added, “If we cannot secure a majority among conservative and democratic unionist party MPs we have no choice but to reach out across the House of Commons.”
May’s remarks come amid Brexit deal vote rejected in the British parliament. However, the remarks made by May was now likely to ignite another political debate over her way of tackling the Brexit process.
The Labour party, who condemned the Brexit process for several times, has backed the UK remaining in a customs union with the bloc after Britain leaves the European Union.
May further stated, “That is the basis for a compromise that can win a majority in parliament and winning that majority is the only way to deliver Brexit.”
Meanwhile, May was scheduled to visit Brussels on April 10 to hold a meeting with the EU leaders at a special summit.
