British Conservatives Take into Account Participation in European Elections
The British Conservative Party is polling members about participation in the European elections in May. The country is scheduled to leave the EU on 29 March.
However, the Brexit deal that Theresa May concluded with Brussels has already been rejected twice by a vast majority in the Lower House.
It is possible that the British are still in the EU when the European Parliament elections take place on 23 May.
According to British media, May is consulting to see if she can try again on Tuesday. If once again failed, Ashley Fox, leader of the Conservative Group in the European Parliament, is continuously looking for candidates.
His fellow MEPs received a Whatsapp message, from which the English newspaper quotes The Guardian. , May I ask you to think this weekend about whether you want to be a candidate? I will talk to you all individually after MV3 next week. “
With MV3, Fox refers to the vote on the Brexit deal in the Lower House. That body has already voted in favour of postponing the Brexit. Indeed, there is still no valid agreement between Brussels and London on what happens after their Brexit with their trade relationship and relations.
The question is what to do if the Brexit is postponed with the elections to the European Parliament. They will take place on 23 May. Some think the British should take part if the Brexit is still not arranged.
Others say that the British can merely ignore the elections, or that they can do some “catch-up election” later.
