After the British Former Prime Minister Theresa May had stepped down since 7 June 19 due to the unsuccessful Brexit deal, her position was still on hold and no replacement yet. As of this moment, there are several candidates who would like to be in the position of the next British Prime Minister. Mostly, the policy of the Conservative Party is all about to get more advantages on Brexit.
However, Germany’s Europe Minister Michael Roth warned the next British Prime Minister candidate that “The EU and its member states cannot be blackmailed,” and “I see no willingness to restart negotiations from the beginning. The candidates would do well to bear that in mind in the course of their internal party campaigns.”
Moreover, the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker reiterated the EU has refused to renegotiate with the Conservative Party candidates. He gave the opinion that “I have the impression for months now that the interest for the British political society is how to replace PM May, not how to find an agreement with the EU,” and “It’s not a treaty between Theresa May and Juncker, it’s a treaty between the EU and the UK. It has to be respected by whomsoever will be the next prime minister … There will be no renegotiation.”
Juncker has also refused to speculate on who could the next PM to replace May. He said the responsibility should belong to the Conservative Party to deal with the new PM, so, the choice and opinion shouldn’t have asked from anyone. Additionally, he gave an assumption that the British will leave before October 31st, 2019.
People still keep eyes on the on-going selection of the new PM and the possibly amended Brexit deal after Theresa May walked out from the parliamentary. Who will be the next British Prime Minister? Who will shoulder the pressure of making the Brexit deal? Referring back to the statement of Roth and Juncker above, having a better deal and renegotiation might be meaningless and impossible.
