British Government Seeks ‘Parliamentary Suspension’ – Queen Elizabeth Agrees

  • It was just a day before opposition leaders in Johnson's government decided that their first priority would be to pass legislation to prevent Britain's disapproval from the European Union.
  • It is a risky strategy that, if defeated, leads to a dangerous exit, which most MPs are worried about.
  • Mr. Johnson's request for an extension of Parliament's summer holidays, the Special Council is expected to issue a decree extending the Parliament's holiday period based on its authority.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government plans to suspend British parliamentarians by blocking the British parliament and its plan to leave the EU. Mr. Johnson, who has recently been elected leader of the Conservative Party and is prime minister, met with Queen Elizabeth II, to convene a special royal council and issue a renewal order.  The EU’s deadline for Britain to make a final decision on leaving the EU on October 31.

Elizabeth II (born 21 April 1926) is Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms. Elizabeth was born in London as the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, and she was educated privately at home.

Mr. Johnson plans to end his country’s membership of the European Union if the EU does not agree with the changes he has made to the existing UK exit agreement. It was just a day before opposition leaders in Johnson’s government decided that their first priority would be to pass legislation to prevent Britain’s disapproval from the European Union.

What happened the next morning? The government announced that by suspending parliament, it would reduce the number of working days in parliament so that they would not have enough time to do so. The British government believes that the European Union will only responds to Boris Johnson’s demands for an amendment to the electoral agreement if it is certain that the British parliament will not be able to prevent dissent.

It is a risky strategy that, if defeated, leads to a dangerous exit, which most MPs are worried about. The subject of choice has become a political-legal chess game and the government believes that it has the upper hand with the Queen’s legal authority.

The monarchy of the United Kingdom, commonly referred to as the British monarchy, is the constitutional monarchy of the United Kingdom, its dependencies (the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the Bailiwick of Jersey and the Isle of Man) and its overseas territories. The monarch and their immediate family undertake various official, ceremonial, diplomatic and representational duties. As the monarchy is constitutional, the monarch is limited to non-partisan functions such as bestowing honours and appointing the prime minister. The monarch is commander-in-chief of the British Armed Forces. Though the ultimate executive authority over the government is still formally by and through the monarch’s royal prerogative, these powers may only be used according to laws enacted in Parliament and, in practice, within the constraints of convention and precedent.

Johnson faces unanimous opposition from a number of opposition parties, including the Labor Party – the main opposition party – as well as a number of conservative MPs in the House of Commons. Some reports suggest that a “special counsel” meeting chaired by the Queen will be convened at the Balmoral Palace, the Queen’s summer residence, to address the prime minister’s request. Because in the British constitutional system, the monarchy is a ceremonial authority, the Queen refuses to openly interfere in political affairs and is responsible for the actions taken in her name, although she can privately hold her own advisory opinions.

Thus, at Mr. Johnson’s request for an extension of Parliament’s summer holidays, the Special Council is expected to issue a decree extending the Parliament’s holiday period based on its authority.

The summer holidays of the House of Commons have no specific date in the UK and are usually decided annually in accordance with the Parliament’s work program. Mid-summer is usually considered a summer vacation. At the end of the summer holiday, the new Parliament period will be inaugurated by the Queen. Shortly after the end of the summer holidays, the House is again closed for a period of time to allow delegates to attend the annual major parties’ conferences.

This year, Parliament’s summer holidays began on the last day of the last six months, and the new period is scheduled to begin early next month. Parliament will again go to “conference holidays” from mid-September to early or mid-October.

Some sources have said the prime minister is calling for a full extension of this summer’s holiday and the opening of the new course on October 7. In such a case, the House of Commons would not have sufficient time to plan for negotiations and voting on the proposal and possibly a negative vote on the proposal without agreement.
