SNP to table amendment on Brexit extension - report

The Scottish National Party (SNP) will table an amendment to United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson's deal with the European Union to ask for a Brexit deadline extension, the Guardian reported on Thursday. The amendment will suggest that the UK's departure from the EU be moved to late January in order to call for a snap general election.

Earlier, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said the EU would not grant another Brexit extension since a deal had been reached with Johnson.

The deal is yet to be approved by the UK Parliament and the European Parliament. However, the DUP and Labour already announced they would not be voting for Johnson's new agreement when a vote on the deal takes place on Saturday.
