The UK Supreme Court ruled that government should have to hold a parliamentary vote before starting the process of Brexit.
The judges voted eight to three against the government, president of the Supreme Court Lord David Neuberger said-:
“To proceed otherwise would be breach of settled constitutional principles stretching back many centuries”
Prime Minister Theresa May wants to begin the process of leaving the EU by the end of the march but court decision gives a setback to the government. A spokesperson for the Prime Minister cleared that they will not step back and will start the process by the declared time-:
“The British people voted to leave the EU, and the government will deliver on their verdict — triggering Article 50, as planned, by the end of March. Today’s ruling does nothing to change that. It’s important to remember that parliament backed the referendum by a margin of six to one and has already indicated its support for getting on with the process of exit to the timetable we have set out”
At the same time court has favored the UK government as they did not need the approval of devolved governments in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales to begin the negotiating process. The pound fell and markets experienced low after the decision.
