European Union leaders agreed Wednesday to delay Brexit until October 31, 2019, so that the UK could “find the best possible solution.” A review of the matter is to take place in June.
European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted that an agreement on an extension had been reached late Wednesday night. According to the Guardian, EU sources have confirmed that there will be an Article 50 extension to October 31, and that the review will focus on whether there should be an earlier exit on June 30.
Tusk said Thursday morning that UK Prime Minister Theresa May had accepted the offer.
EU27/UK have agreed a flexible extension until 31 October. This means additional six months for the UK to find the best possible solution.
