According to media reports, Brexit may be postponed until June 30 this year, after the UK parliament twice rejected government proposals and demanded a deal with the EU.

The UK parliament rejected Brexit again during the session held on March 12, while it demanded a withdrawal agreement with the EU during the following day’s session.

EU Commission president Donald Tusk has stated in a tweet that he may ask EU leaders to open themselves to the possibility of an extension of the Brexit deadline, so that the UK could build consensus around the issue.

UK and EU businesses are also united around the necessity of agreeing a withdrawal deal prior to the UK’s exit from the EU. As previously reported by SteelOrbis, EUROFER and many other organizations have called for a no-deal Brexit to be avoided, warning against the possible disruption of supply chains and unemployment.
