UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson denied that he lied to the Queen over his reasons for proroguing Parliament. The five-week suspension was ruled unlawful by a Scottish court.
Axar.az reports citing DW that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday denied lying to the Queen regarding the advice he gave her over the suspension of Parliament.
"The High Court in England plainly agrees with us, but the Supreme Court will have to decide," Johnson said on Thursday. The Supreme Court now has to rule on the decision made by the Scottish court.
Johnson said he suspended parliament in order to present his program of improvements to "people's priorities" in a new parliamentary session.
Parliamentary sessions normally last one year in the UK, but the current one has run non-stop since 2017 amid concerns over Brexit legislation.
Johnson is under increased pressure from lawmakers and the public to recall Parliament. Some MPs have staged a sit-in at the House of Commons, claiming that Johnson's suspension was proven "unlawful" by the Scottish court.
