Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras favors extension of Brexit process until March 2020 and he even hopes that Brexit could be reversed.
European leaders have to decide on the issue of Brexit by taking into account their historical and political responsibility, Tsipras told European leaders at the Extraordinary Summit on Wednesday.
He pointed out that the European Union has always been in favor of finding a common place through consensus and flexibility.
He also referred to the need to de-dramatize the Brexit adding that the deadline of May 26 is pressing.
“If the U.K. Parliament doesn’t approve the withdrawal agreement in the next six weeks, it will be forced to hold European elections,” Tsipras said according to state news agency amna and bloomberg.
““This will be the greatest defeat of Brexiteers, and maybe even the beginning of the end for Brexit,” the Greek Prime Minister stressed.
Tsiprasn raised the rhetorical question of what the European Union’s goal is: to reinforce or rule out this possibility.
Tsipras argued that it cannot be forgotten that the United Kingdom is the only country in Europe where there is such a massive movement in favor of the EU, with six million signatures and thousands of citizens demonstrating, while in many member states there are only movements against the EU.
PS At the end of the day, I wasn’t totally wrong to propose as Brexit day the 30. February 2020 in this poll.
