Negotiations on Brexit start at the end of March next year

The formal start of the negotiations on Brexit – withdrawal from the European Union – will begin at the end of March next year. Theresa May, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom said: “We’ll employ the exit mechanism from the EU until the end of March next year.” May said that Brexit was an “extremely difficult” procedure and the British Government would have long negotiations with Brussels about its details. In addition, May added that she was not going to wait for the parliamentary elections in Germany scheduled for 2017. According to the prime minister, Britain will choose the start time for the Brexit process based on their convenience but not on the interests of Europe.

A referendum on the country’s withdrawal from the EU has been held in Britain on June 23 this year. 51.9% voted for the British withdrawal from the European Union. 48.1% of respondents voted against the exit from the EU. The UK needs to launch the ambit of Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty in order to start the procedure. It states that each country, which is a part of the EU, may decide to withdraw from the union. The state must officially inform Brussels about its decision so that it can leave the EU. This action triggers a further stage of the negotiations.
