EU27 has agreed that it will accept UK's request for Brexit ‘flex tension’, EU says. reports citing AA that the EU agreed to accept the U.K.'s request for a Brexit extension till Jan. 31 of the next year, EU Council President Donald Tusk announced on Monday.

"The EU27 has agreed that it will accept the UK's request for a #Brexit flex tension until 31 January 2020. The decision is expected to be formalized through a written procedure," Tusk wrote on Twitter.

Earlier this month, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson failed to receive enough support on his revised Brexit deal and he reluctantly requested a Brexit extension from the EU in accordance with legislation known as the Benn Act that forces him to do so.

The "flex tension" means that the U.K. will be able to leave the EU before the new deadline if Johnson's revised Brexit deal is ratified by the House of Commons on an earlier date.

U.K. voters decided to leave the EU in a 2016 referendum with a small margin.
