UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday, September 9th, that he will not make a new request to delay Brexit after October 31st, although members of the British parliament had approved a new law which would force him to do that, AFP reported.

"I will not ask for another delay," Johnson told the parliament.

Johnson added that if the members voted against proceeding in an earlier general election, then he would not have another choice but to prepare for UK's departure from the European Union, "hopefully with a deal .. but without one if necessary."
