UK lawmakers said to put forward amendment seeking to force parliament to hold indicative votes

Author: Justin Low | Category: News

The votes will be on Brexit next steps and to take place after the EU Summit

Reuters is reporting with the headline, citing UK lawmakers on the matter. In short, it's basically trying to get parliament to decide what it wants to do after the European Union grants a Brexit extension to the UK.

Alternatively, this creates another medium for lawmakers to wrestle control of the Brexit process from May. If this amendment passes, chances are May's MV3 will be voted down when put to the test next week.

Update: ITV political correspondent, Paul Brand, says that the indicative votes session could take place next Wednesday i.e. before the EU Summit. That would make more sense in my view so that the EU would know how long to extend the Brexit deal for. All this of course is conjecture for now, the amendment has to pass the vote first later today.

Update #2: It is confirmed now that the indicative votes will take place on 20 March, based on the amendment text.
