UK: Johnson's cabinet convenes amid suspension of Parliament

United Kingdom, London
September 10, 2019 at 17:48 GMT +00:00 · Published

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's cabinet members were filmed arriving at London's 10 Downing Street on Tuesday, for their first meeting after the start of Parliament prorogation.

The meeting took place after Prime Minister Boris Johnson's motion to hold an early election failed for the second time to achieve the required supermajority in the House of Commons on Monday, and after the Parliament was officially prorogued until October 14.

UK is set to leave the EU on October 31, though the new legislation forces the prime minister to seek a delay unless a deal is approved by MPs by October 19.
