The Brexit withdrawal agreement is an unratified treaty between the European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom (UK), setting the terms of the withdrawal (Brexit) of the latter from the former. It covers such matters as money, citizens rights, border arrangements and dispute resolution. It also contains a transition period, and an outline of the future relationship between the UK and the EU. Published on 14 November 2018, it was a result of the Brexit negotiations. The agreement was endorsed by the leaders of the 27 remaining EU countries and the UK Government led by Prime Minister Theresa May, but faced opposition in the UK parliament, whose approval was necessary for ratification.. On 15 January 2019, the House of Commons rejected the withdrawal agreement by a vote of 432 to 202. The Commons rejected the Agreement again on 12 March 2019, on a vote of 391 to 242, and rejected a third time of 29 March 2019 by 344 votes to 286.
