Johnson to request election if Brexit delay is approved - report

United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson is likely to request "immediate general election" if Brexit's delay to the end of January 2020 is approved by the European Union, according to ITV's political editor, who cited unnamed sources from the British government.

"This Parliament is totally broken," said the source, adding that the UK public will have the choice between completing the withdrawal process with Johnson or "two referendums on Brexit and Scotland with Corbyn."

Earlier, Johnson said in Parliament that he will pause the Brexit bill until the EU provides a decision on the extension, while President of the European Council Donald Tusk stated he would recommend the acceptance of the postponement.
