PARIS (Reuters) – A senior official in President Emmanuel Macron’s office said on Wednesday that France took note of British Prime Minister Theresa May’s decision to send the Brexit divorce deal to a third vote in parliament.
“If the deal is rejected, it would pave the way for the undesirable outcome of a no-deal,” the official said.
“A technical extension could be envisaged to complete legislative work in case of a deal. That’s what Mrs May is asking for and will be discussed tomorrow at the European Council,” the official added.
