Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend the UK Parliament has marked a confrontation between the courts, Parliament and the prime minister.
Today, Prime Minister Boris Johnson had a major blow as Britain’s Supreme Court gave ruling against him with respect to the UK Parliament suspension for 5 weeks at a crucial time.
Supreme Court President Brenda Hale said the suspension
was unlawful because it had the effect of frustrating or preventing the ability of Parliament to carry out its constitutional functions without reasonable justification.
The highest and unanimous court with a panel of 11 judges has said that the suspension of Parliament for 5 weeks is
void and of no effect.
It is a crucial time for the UK as it has to make a decision on whether to leave the 28-nation Brexit or not by October 31.
The opponents have also accused Boris Johnson of misleading the queen in regarding the Parliament suspension. After coming to power in July, Boris Johnson and Parliament have been at odds. The odds remain unsolved till date as to take Britain out of the EU on October 31 with or without a divorce deal with Europe. Britian has already announced the scheduled to leave the European Union long back.
Presently, Johnson is in New York for attending the United Nations Assembly has declined to comment on Supreme Courts decision. This can be considered as major set back for Johnson as the opposition has continuously targeted him for illegal shut down of Parliament.
UK is suffering from political stability from the time of Brexit deal. EU has played its own role directly or indirectly for the UK’s political instability.
Now, the opponents of Boris Johnson may demand an immediate parliament session to discuss on Brexit which may be an uncomfortable zone for the Britain’s Prime minister.
