British Prime Minister Theresa May is postponing a key vote on her proposed Brexit plan.
May addressed members of Parliament Monday. She said she stands by her plan, but has delayed Tuesday’s vote due to opposition over the “backstop” proposal.
The “backstop” proposal is essentially a backup plan to maintain an open border between Ireland and Northern Ireland if no formal deal can be reached on trade and security.
May said she still believes she will be able to secure a deal on her proposal, and outlined why she thinks it is the best chance for her country.
