EU Approves A Short Brexit Extension, But On New Terms

European Union leaders decided that Britain’s exit date will be pushed back to May 22 if next week Prime Minister Theresa May can persuade lawmakers in Parliament to accept her plan for leaving the bloc, which they have already rejected overwhelmingly, twice.

 

If she cannot persuade lawmakers to accept her plan, Mrs. May will get a shorter delay in exiting the European Union until April 12.

 

But Britain could stay in the bloc much longer if it decides it needs more time for a bigger rethink of Brexit, as the process is known.
