High court rejects legal challenge over UK suspension of Parliament.

London, Sept. 6 (Petra)-- The High Court of England has said Prime Minister Boris Johnson's decision to prorogue Parliament is lawful. A similar legal challenge is also being heard in Northern Ireland. The High Court of England and Wales on Friday morning rejected a legal challenge against the British government's decision to prorogue Parliament. The ruling is likely to be appealed to the Supreme Court, Britain's highest judicial body, which has penciled in September 17 to hear the case. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced at the end of August that he would suspend Parliament from mid-September to mid-October, just before the UK is due to exit the EU on October 31, so that the government can announce a new legislative program. //Petra// 06/09/2019 16:29:46
