Theresa May seeks business support for Brexit deal

British Prime Minister, Theresa May

(Reuters/NAN) British Prime Minister, Theresa May, is now seeking to win support from business leaders for her contentious draft European Union divorce deal (Brexit).

The move came on Monday as dissenters in her own party scrambled to trigger a leadership challenge.

May experienced confusion few days since unveiling her deal on Wednesday last week, with several ministers, including her Brexit minister, resigning and some of her own members of parliament seeking to oust her.

The British leader, however, vowed to fight on, warning that toppling her risked delaying Britain’s EU exit.

She also said that future partnership agreement would help to ensure that the government delivered on the 2016 Brexit vote.

The EU is due to hold a summit to discuss the deal on Nov. 25.

May said Britain would embark on an intense week of Brexit negotiations to try to thrash out the details of its outline future relationship with the EU.

More than two years after the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU, it is still unclear how, on what terms or even if it will leave.

The exit is planned for March 29, 2019 with business leaders fearful that Britain could leave the bloc with no deal in place.
