London, May 22: United Kingdom (UK) Prime Minister Theresa May has on Tuesday vowed to offer lawmakers a vote to decided whether to hold a second referendum for Brexit deal as part of her last effort to pass her hated European Union (EU) divorce agreement.

According to Dawn news reports, success on the fourth attempt in the parliament would help the embattled PM reclaim her legacy as a leader sho kept her promises to carefully steer a bitterly divided nation through the profound geopolitical shift in the generations.

May has stated she will quit the office shortly after those measures which she outlined on Tuesday were put up for early voting next month, no matter the result.

“I recognize the genuine and sincere strength of feeling across the house on this important issue,” May said in a nationally televised address delivered from the offices of a major accounting firm in London.

She added, “The government will, therefore, include in the Withdrawal Agreement Bill at introduction a requirement to vote on whether to hold a second referendum.”

May said this must take place before the withdrawal deal can be ratified, as the measures are key demands of the main opposition Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour party.

However, it is also opposed by supporters of Brexit, Conservatives, whose votes might be needed to May if she wants to get her deal pass through the British parliament.

May stated her proposals were the parliament’s “last chance” to put an end to a political deadlock that has delayed Brexit, originally scheduled on March. She called them “a new Brexit deal” that Britain must now rally behind.

The process could be delayed until October 31 — the deadline set by the EU — or even further if EU leaders grant Britain another postponement.

The proposed measures would provide parliament with a chance to approve a temporary customs union with the 27 countries.
