Prime Minister Boris Johnson acted unlawfully when he suspended the United Kingdom’s Parliament, according to the Supreme Court of United Kingdom, the highest court of the land. This is a big blow to UK’s new Prime Minister who had suspended Parliament few weeks ago.
“the suspension was unlawful, void and of no effect. Parliament has not been prorogued, this is the unanimous judgement of the court. This prolonged suspension of Parliamentary democracy took place in quite exceptional circumstances: the fundamental change which was due to take place in the constitution of the United Kingdom on 31st October. Parliament, and in particular the House of Commons as the elected representatives of the people, has a right to a voice in hoe the change comes about. The effect upon the fundamentals of our democracy was extreme. The normal period to prepare a legislative was four to six days” UK’s Presiding Judge noted.
Boris Johnson responded few minutes after the judgement saying he strongly disagrees with the verdict. “I strongly disagree with the verdict, the most important thing is that we get on and deliver Brixit on October 31st” the Prime Minister said. Opposition leader also responded to the courts decision and this was what he said. “I invite Boris Johnson to consider the shortest serving Prime Minister that has ever been” leader of Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn.
