EU: The Brexit agreement, which was approved by all member states, is unlikely to change with the election of a new prime minister in the UK.
The European Union declared that the Brexit agreement will not change with a newly elected prime minister in Britain.
Margaritis Schinas, the EU Commission’s Chief Spokesperson, answered the question at a daily press conference regarding whether Boris Johnson, who is competing for the Conservative Party leadership and prime ministry, can avoid paying 40 billion pounds for leaving the union.
Schinas said, “Everyone knows the agreement on the table. The Brexit agreement was approved by all member states and the election of a new prime minister in Britain will not change that.’
Schinas emphasized that that the EU will not intervene in the UK leadership race.
UK LEADERSHIP RACE CONTINUES
Following the resignation of British Prime Minister Theresa May from the Conservative Party leadership, the application deadline for new leader candidates expired yesterday evening. The number of those who formally applied for candidacy by taking the support of 8 deputies is 10.
