The minister for Brexit says the United Kingdom will leave the EU on the 31st

The UK Government Minister, Michael Gove, announced on Sunday that Brexit will be held on October 31, despite British parliamentarians forced Prime Minister Boris Johnson to send a letter on Saturday to the European Union (EU) requesting a postponement.

After the hard blow Johnson suffered during the extraordinary session held on Saturday that resulted in the decision by the British Parliament to postpone the decision on the Brexit agreement until October 22, the law forced him to send a petition for written to the president of the European Council, Donald Tusk, to request an extension, at least until January 21, 2020.

Although the news was known, Johnson assured that “I will not negotiate an extension with the European Union and neither does the law oblige me to do so,” he finally decided to comply with the regulations. However, he has sent this unsigned petition to Tusk as proof of his disagreement, and has attached a letter requesting that such postponement be rejected.

“We’re going out on October 31, we have the means and the ability to do it,” Gove told Sky News, according to Reuters.

Minister Gove, responsible for the preparations for a Brexit without agreement, said that “that letter was sent because Parliament required it to be sent, but Parliament cannot change the mind of the Prime Minister, Parliament cannot change the policy or Government determination. “

For Gove, the risk of a Brexit to the brave has increased: “If we had won the victory yesterday, today we would be clearly on the path to the agreement,” he said. “Now, as a result of that vote, we cannot guarantee that any extension will be granted.”
