Earlier Chairman of the European Council Donald Tusk reported on his Twitter page that he had received the letter from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson relating to the Brexit's postponement. 

As we reported, on October 19, 322 MPs voted for the Brexit delay, while 306 were against it. 

Boris Johnson proposed to the EU a plan to revise the Brexit agreement in part of Northern Ireland. Johnson drew attention to the government’s position on back-stop in the protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland. He called this mechanism unviable and anti-democratic and proposed to abolish it. Instead, Johnson developed other rules for the Northern Ireland border after Brexit.

However, earlier it was reported that British parliamentarians are preparing lawsuits in case Prime Minister Boris Johnson refuses to ask Brussels to delay Brexit.
