The United Kingdom’s parliament on Tuesday once again rejected Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal, throwing further uncertainty into how the country will divorce from the European Union ahead of the March 29 deadline.
The House of Commons, voted 391-242 to reject May’s plan.
Parliament must approve a deal by March 29 that would allow it to negotiate its future relationship with the European Union before it officially breaks off from the body. The U.K. will leave the EU on that date without any transition efforts in place if the government cannot come to an agreement.
About 52 percent of U.K. voters supported a 2016 referendum to withdraw the country from the continental pact.
