Prime Minister Theresa May says that Britain will trigger Article 50, which formally starts the process of leaving the EU, within Germany’s Federal election in September 2017.

May said this in an interview with the British Newspaper the Sunday Times.

Sunday she goes to the pulpit at the conservative National Convention in Birmingham. Decision made in 1972 to incorporate the UK in the European Community will be repealed.

– In the next Speech from the Throne, we will introduce a law that removes the European Community law from our regulations, says May.

As usual, the British monarch holding a speech once a year in the Parliament where the government’s plans for the coming year are presented.

In recent years, the British Queen’s speech has been held in May or June.

May took over after David Cameron resigned in the wake of the referendum in June when a majority of Britons voted for the country to leave the EU.
