Johnson returns to London to drum up support for Brexit deal

 

After winning the backing of European Union leaders for his new Brexit deal , US Prime Minister Boris Johnson was in London Friday looking to secure enough support to get the deal through the fractious British Parliament, reports AP.

Johnson returned overnight for what is expected to be a busy day attempting to persuade lawmakers to vote for the divorce deal at a rare Saturday sitting of Parliament.

It is expected to be a knife-edge vote.

Johnson's Conservative Party doesn't have a majority in the 650-seat House of Commons so he will have to rely on support from other parties and independent lawmakers to get over the line.
