UK to Begin Brexit Before German Election

Theresa May has said she plans to introduce a bill to scrap the legislation that took the UK into the European Union.
May also said the UK would not wait for the 2017 German election before triggering the Brexit process.
In a front-page story in “The Sunday Times” under the headline “May fires starting gun,” British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced her plans to make Britain “a sovereign and independent country” by repealing the act that brought the United Kingdom into the European Union, Deutsche Welle reported.
“We will introduce, in the next Queen’s speech, a Great Repeal Bill that will remove the European Communities Act from the statute book,” said May.
EU law and regulations would instead be enshrined in British law and then removed or kept, depending on what the UK Parliament decided.
The act would take legal effect once Britain formally leaves the European Union, the newspaper reported.
In her interview, May also said Britain would not wait for next autumn’s German election before triggering Article 50 to begin the formal process of leaving the European Union. This process would be expected to take two years to complete.
In her interview, May told the newspaper that the new bill would likely be introduced in April or May.
“This marks the first stage in the UK becoming a sovereign and independent country once again. It will return power and authority to the elected institutions of our country. It means that the authority of EU law in Britain will end.”
The prime minister was due to address her first party conference as leader on Sunday.
In the interview, she ruled out an early general election because it would cause “instability.” However, she is coming under pressure from party members to call a snap election, as a poll has shown May could more than quadruple her majority if she called an early vote.
