British Prime Minister on Friday October 18th reiterated that Britain would leave the European Union on October 31 whether or not the parliament approves his Brexit deal with the European Union, in an interview with BBC, Reuters reported.

The parliament will vote on Saturday on the Brexit deal Boris Johnson and European Union Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker announced on Thursday October 17th, but the deal is met with resistance by some members of the parliament, whose approval is needed before implementation would be possible.

Johnson believes the parliament’s voting in favour of his Brexit deal was the only way to avoid a withdrawal without a deal, Reuters cited a senior British official as saying on Thursday.
