British lawmakers voted on Wednesday to back Prime Minister Theresa May’s revised Brexit plan which could delay the country’s departure from the European Union.

MPs voted for a three-step plan revealed by May on Tuesday giving her more time to renegotiate a deal she made with the European bloc last year.

The vote means that May must gain support for an adjusted deal by 12 March, otherwise lawmakers will on 13 and 14 March vote for leaving on 29 March with no deal or decide on delaying Brexit altogether.
