    UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned during a heated debate with Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn in the Parliament that he would push for snap general elections to be held on 15 October after lawmakers received the chance to block a no-deal Brexit.

    British activists are taking to Parliament Square in London for a "Defend Our Democracy" rally.

    Since assuming office, Johnson has been pushing for a withdrawal by the 31 October deadline, with or without a deal. Because he lost the parliamentary majority, the prime minister can no longer guarantee that UK lawmakers will ratify any potential deal, should Brussels agree to renegotiate.
