The President of the Party of the European Left, Gregor Gysi declares:

With the rejection of the Brexit-Deal by Prime Minister Teresa May in the House of Commons is certain that she could not get a majority for her deal and that it has most likely failed on the Irish issue and the so-called Back-stop. There is only one right next step, new elections in the UK. With the referendum initiated by David Cameron in June 2016, the population was divided and has not recovered from it until today. Now we have to find a common way. Leaving the United Kingdom out of the European Union without a deal would also be wrong, as it means a divorce contract at the expense of the people of Britain. Theresa May has to stand for elections or resign. It is time for Britain to take a new path.
