Many experts of political science predicting an uncertainty on the future of Brexit. Here we will discuss a realistic overview of Brexit and possible difficulties on Brexit for May’s successor. Brexit ( a short form of Britain exit from European Union) has eaten up two British prime ministers. The first victim was the then prime minister David Cameron who resigned after Brexit referendum. Theresa May was his successor, but she also ended up in resignation due to her failure in persuading parliamentarians on a negotiated deal with EU. Her departure will develop some new ways to get Britain out of the European Union. Political experts in London and Brussels were expecting May’s departure.

Here we will cover various aspects connected with May’s departure. Theresa May have been struggling with a negotiated deal that may be acceptable for both EU and British parliament for two years. However, she could not succeed. In Friday’s speech, she open heartedly accepted her failure. Brexit was the focal point of May’s tenure in office. She always insisted “Brexit means Brexit.”

May’s Government successfully negotiated the Brexit deal with EU in 2018. But this success was proven temporary because the lower house of the British Parliament ruled out this deal. The deal requires to satisfy those who want closer relations with the EU and also those who want a cut off with the EU. Also, the land border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland was an unaddressed issue. The EU opposes strict border management between the two. But the UK has serious concerns on this border.
The EU has maintained its stance on no compromise on a negotiated Brexit deal of 2018. However, it declared that future road map and political assertions can be discussed. The negotiated deal was ruled out two times by the British parliament. However, the British parliament wants a deal-Brexit. May tried her best to convince the parliamentarians that her proposed deal is the only way to go for a deal-Brexit. However, her attempts were failed when parliament rejected her proposed deal for the third time in March 2019.

In her Friday’s speech, she clarified that she would resign as party leader on June 7th but will remain prime minister till voting for the new PM. The new prime minister will be elected in July. Political experts believe that Boris Johnson can be an effective and efficient successor of May. He served as foreign secretary under May and resigned from the cabinet over differences on Brexit.

Aldo Carcaci is a member of the Belgian parliament. He opines that Boris Johnson can settle an agreement with Nigel Farage who is a staunch supporter of Brexit. Steven Woolfe is an independent member of the EU parliament from the United Kingdom. He favors May’s departure. He expressed his hope that the new British leader will opt for a deal acceptable by all sectors of the British parliament.

However, opposition leader Mr. Jeremy Corbyn opines that a new prime minister should give a call for early elections. A YouGov survey suggests that about 46 percent population supports the Corbyn’s opinion.
This was all about the situation of UK-EU relations on Brexit. So far Brexit is proven to be hot-issue within and outside the United Kingdom. We can hope that the new British Prime Minister will put forward a deal that will be acceptable by all sections of British and European parliaments.
