UK PM pushes for Brexit deal vote after being forced to seek delay

JESSICA TAYLOR / UK PARLIAMENT / AFP

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will make another attempt to win parliament’s backing for his Brexit deal on Monday.

Johnson insists he can still deliver Brexit on October 31, despite losing a crucial vote on Saturday and sending a letter seeking a delay from the European Union.

According to reports, he now has the backing of the 320 MPs needed for victory.

However, it's still unclear if the House of Commons speaker will allow such a vote.
