EU to vote next Tuesday to ratify the Brexit traded agreement – RTE

The European Parliament is reportedly said to vote next Tuesday to ratify the EU-UK trade agreement (TCA), RTE reports, citing some unnamed sources with knowledge of the matter.

Recall that the EU had requested for another two months until 30 April to ratify the Brexit deal in early February.

In light of the above, the EU Parliament committees on relations with the UK voted last Thursday, in favor of the post-Brexit trade and cooperation agreement, giving a green light for the final ratification.
