- The United Kingdom is on the verge of leaving the European Union following the passage of a bill by the country's House of Commons
- The bill will now be debated by the upper chamber, House of Lords ahead of January 31 slated for Brexit
- However, while some parliamentarians are still against the move, others seem to be excited about the feat
It is victory for prime minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, as the country’s parliament has endorsed the lingering Brexit deal.
The endorsement of the bill by the House of Commons on Thursday, January 9, means that the UK may be close to exiting the European Union.
Aljazeera reports that the bill was endorsed by 330 ahead of UK’s planned exit on January 31.
Johnson’s party had won a general election in December 2019 giving an edge to the passage of the bill, a feat his predecessor, Theresa May, could not achieve at the House of Commons.
The report quoted Tim Bale, professor of politics at Queen Mary University of London, as saying: "Johnson has taken a party and a government that was on the edge of a nervous breakdown in the summer of 2019 to an overall majority in a legislature than now stands little chance of stopping it doing pretty much whatever it wants.”
While those against the move continue to criticise it, a lot of the citizens in support of Brexit are said to be excited over the success of the prime minister.
The bill is now to be debated by the UK’s House of Lords.
Legit.ng earlier reported that UK's conservatives won the country's election which ended late Thursday, December 12.
Quoting the CNN, the report said Boris Johnson's party won the election with at least 326 seats, which is very much enough to guarantee a majority of the votes cast.
Johnson clung to the seat after the controversial Brexit winning seats from Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party in its traditional heartlands.
