The United Kingdom’s Supreme Court is set to commence its first of three days of hearings and trials against current Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Johnson, who is in the Conservative Party, is going to the court to determine whether his decision to advise the queen to suspend parliament could be deemed “unlawful”.
It was originally Johnson’s plan to suspend the parliament’s meetings for five weeks, giving him to write a new legislative program to help speed up the process of a Brexit deal. The queen, who is publicly independent and only acts in the words of the Prime Minister, agreed to suspend parliament.
The reason Johnson’s suspension of Parliament could be considered “unlawful” is due to many of his opponents arguing that he’s just delaying time to October 31, which is the deadline for a no-deal Brexit plan. The 11 justices of the Supreme Court will hear and finally judge about its legality for the next three days.
