Britain’s Supreme Court Rules Against Parliament Suspension
Britain’s Supreme Court has ruled that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s suspension of parliament was illegal.
It’s a major setback for Johnson, who had suspended parliament for five weeks.
He claimed it was a routine closure to prepare for a new session.
But Britain’s highest court ruled Johnson made the move to stifle opposition over Brexit.
The Brexit party chairman says Tuesday’s ruling means Britain will have to ask the European Union to push back the Brexit deadline once again.
Parliament is expected to reconvene Wednesday.
