European leaders offer 6-month extension to its Brexit departure
European leaders have offered Britain an extension till the end of October, which is a 6 month delay to its Brexit departure. Mrs May welcomed the extension, which will be flexible to enable Britain to leave the EU on June 1 and avoid taking place in European Parliamentary elections on May 23, should an agreement be reached before May 22. It will further save the continent from a chaotic no-deal departure. If May accepts the extension, British voters will have to take part in European parliamentary elections.
