UK prime minister asks EU to delay Brexit until June 30

PM Theresa May has written a letter to Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council, requesting an extension to Article 50 to delay Brexit until June 30, 2019. May also confirmed the UK is preparing for European elections.

May’s plea to Tusk could prove a sticking point, with media reports circulating that the European Council president would prefer a year-long “flexible” extension to Article 50 that would run beyond April 12, 2019 to March 31, 2020. The proposal would allow the UK to leave the EU earlier if a Brexit deal were ratified.
