The United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union

Brexit: The United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union
Brexit is the scheduled withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU). It follows a referendum held in the UK on 23 June 2016, in which 52% of those voting supported withdrawal. The UK government invoked Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU), starting a two-year process which was due to conclude with the UK withdrawing on 29 March 2019. As the UK parliament refused to ratify the negotiated Withdrawal Agreement and Declaration on Future Relations, that deadline has been extended twice, and is currently 31 October 2019. UK law requires the government to seek a third extension if no agreement is reached before the next meeting of the European Council on 17–18 October.
