Members of Parliament put the heat on Britain to invoke article 50 of Lisbon Treaty

Then European Parliament plenary approved a resolution with 395 notes in favour, 200 against and 71 abstentions calling on Britain to invoke article 50 to start immediate negotiations of terms of exit form Britain from the EU. The talks are expected to last for two years. The “will expressed by the people needs to be entirely and fully respected, starting with an immediate activation of Article 50,” said a resolution. The Parliament also calls on the Council to change the order of its presidencies to prevent the withdrawal process from jeopardising the management of the day-to-day business of the Union. The UK was set to take on the presidency in the second half of 2017. Parliament will also change its internal organisation to reflect UK citizens’ will to withdraw from the EU.
