The European Union (EU) has extended Brexit deadline to January 31, 2020.

Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, disclosed this in a tweet on Monday.

He said the regional bloc would allow for a “flexible extension” which means the UK could leave before the deadline if a deal was approved by parliament.

“The EU27 has agreed that it will accept the UK’s request for a #Brexit flextension until 31 January 2020. The decision is expected to be formalised through a written procedure,” the tweet read.

The draft text of the agreement of the 27 EU ambassadors include a commitment that the agreement on the UK’s exit from the EU cannot be renegotiated in the future.

This development comes as members of parliament prepare to vote on proposals by Prime Minister Boris Johnson for an early general election on December 12.

Johnson earlier announced that Britain got a great new deal to leave the EU.

He said the new deal will take back control, asking members of the parliament to proceed in getting the deal done.

The UK was initially due to leave the EU on Thursday.
