UK on the verge to participate in European Parliament elections

The election to be canceled if the UK has quit the EU by the eve of the vote

The British government has laid groundwork that would enable it to participate in the European Parliament elections next month, should the UK still find itself in the EU by the time the vote takes place.

The move signals a possibility that Brexit could be delayed beyond the May 23 election date — nearly three years after Britons voted in a referendum to leave the EU — locking the UK into participating in the European poll. But the Cabinet Office cautioned that taking the legal steps did not mean elections were “inevitable,” saying they would be canceled if the UK has quit the EU by the eve of the vote.
