Brexit Brief: EU leaders debate one-year delay to avoid no-deal

Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, has written to EU leaders to ask them to back his proposal to offer the U.K. a one-year extension to the Brexit process.

Keen to avoid a potential series of shorter delays, Tusk said his so-called flextension model offered the U.K. its best chance of agreeing a way to exit the bloc with a deal in place.

Tusk’s letter was penned on the eve of a two-day meeting of EU leaders, beginning on Wednesday, at which they will decide whether or not to give U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May yet more time to find a way of breaking the Brexit deadlock in the British parliament.
