The British Parliament voted on Thursday in favor of delaying the country’s withdrawal from the European Union (EU) until the end of June as it continues debate on a transition deal.

The Parliament’s lower house, the House of Commons, voted 412-202 to instruct Prime Minister Theresa May to seek an extension from the EU, which would require approval from all 27 member states.

The United Kingdom was scheduled to leave the European Union on March 29.
