His disagreement for a Brexit extension expressed EPP’s chair in the European Parliament. According to the Reuters Manfred Weber considers any extension not a good idea since in this case the UK should participate in the European elections.
“I can’t imagine an extension until the end of June. The (EU) Commission has repeatedly explained that in this case, Britain has to participate in the election and this would lead to big uncertainties,” Weber told German public radio DLF.
He also warned that the “political chaos” in London threats to contaminate the EU member states.
