Brexit

On 29 March 2017, following a referendum 9 months earlier in which the UK voted by a slim majority to leave the EU, the UK triggered Article 50, officially starting Brexit - the first time a Member State leaves the EU - and a 2-year negotiation period on a ‘divorce settlement’.

The European Parliament will have to approve or reject the final departure deal and was the first EU institution to adopt its position on Brexit negotiations in April 2017.

This position reflects our priorities: securing the rights of EU citizens in the UK and UK citizens in the Member States, ensuring the UK meets its financial commitments and an agreement on Northern Ireland that avoids a 'hard' border with Ireland and sets the terms of the Good Friday peace agreement in stone.

The resolution will also be the yardstick by which we will measure the outcome of negotiations on the UK's withdrawal from the EU.

Brexit will remain high on the agenda of the European Parliament over the next two years as the EU and the UK negotiate first the orderly withdrawal of the UK, then a transitional arrangement and finally a deal on our future relationship.

According to a poll commissioned by our Group, 78% of EU citizens think the primary objective for Brexit negotiations should be to protect the interests of the remaining EU27, in particular their economies. More poll results.
