UK lawmakers vote to take control of Brexit process
[LONDON] British lawmakers on Monday voted to wrest control of the Brexit process to try to find a majority for an alternative way forward that would break the parliamentary deadlock.
The amendment put forward by Oliver Letwin, a lawmaker from Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives, changes the rules of parliament on Wednesday in order to provide time for so-called indicative votes on Brexit options.
Lawmakers voted by 329 to 302 to accept the amendment. The motion will be voted on shortly and also needs to be passed.
