UK’S SUPREME COURT TO RULE ON PARLIAMENT SUSPENSION TODAY
Written by thereachfm on September 24, 2019
The Supreme Court of United Kingdom will give it ruling today whether Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament for five weeks was lawful.
According to reports, the judgement scheduled for 10:30am, if it goes against Johnson, Parliament could be reconvened immediately.
Ministers say the suspension, or prorogation is not a court matter, but critics argue it was intended to limit scrutiny of the PM’s Brexit plans.
The government has said it will “abide by the ruling” of the Supreme Court.
Parliament is currently due to return on 14 October, with the UK scheduled to leave the EU on 31 October.
