After winning the backing of European Union leaders for his new Brexit deal , Prime Minister Boris Johnson was in London Friday looking to secure enough support to get the deal through the fractious British Parliament, Agencies report.
Johnson returned from an EU summit in Brussels overnight for what is
expected to be a busy day attempting to persuade lawmakers to vote for the
divorce deal at a rare Saturday sitting of Parliament.
It is expected to be a knife-edge vote.
Johnson’s Conservative Party holds only 288 seats in the 650-seat House of
Commons so he will have to rely on support from other parties and independent
lawmakers to get over the line.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab started drumming up support early.
