The European Union may extend Brexit for three months if Prime Minister of the UK Boris Johnson is not able to make the deal with the parliament this week. Then the EU will postpone Brexit until February 2020 as The Sunday Times reported.

The decision will not be made before Tuesday until the EU government assesses possibilities of approval of the agreement on the withdrawal of Britain from the EU. If Johnson will face the problems or the second referendum will be held in the UK, the Union will strive for more extended prolongation, possibly until June 2020.

The European Parliament will estimate the voting of the British parliament on Brexit.

On October 19, the parliament of Britain voted for delay of the Brexit by 322 votes for and 306 votes against.

Earlier it was reported that British parliamentarians were preparing lawsuits in case Prime Minister Boris Johnson refuses to postpone Brexit's delay.

British government says they guarantee the country's exit from the EU on October 31. Boris Johnson claimed that Great Britain would leave the EU on October 31 anyway.

As we reported earlier, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker warned British Prime Minister Boris Johnson that his intention to withdraw the country from the European Union without the deal would harm primarily London, not Brussels.
