British Prime Minister May appoints New Brexit Minister after Stepping down Davis. British Prime Minister Theresa May has designated Dominic Raab as the new Brexit minister on Monday. His predecessor David Davis filed his resignation in the night from Sunday to Monday.
“The Queen has affirmed the selection of Dominic Raab as a Brexit Minister,” is revealed in a statement from May’s office. The new function of Raab is now on the website of the British government.
His predecessor Davis was too often to disagree with the prime minister about the discussions.
Davis states that the current policy of the government made it harder to comply with the outcome of the Brexit referendum.
“Our negotiating position is weak at best,” he said.
On Friday, after months of consultation, the British cabinet agreed to the negotiation circumstances for the Brexit. Then Davis already said he did not agree with the terms.
Free trade area
The agreement states that there must be a free trade area between the European Union and the United Kingdom. The free movement of people does disappear.
Davis is in favour of a tough Brexit without free trade zones. Shortly after Davis stepped out, It Is also known that the under-ministers Steve Baker and Suella Braverman have also resigned.
May lets us know how sorry it is that Davis is leaving. “Our negotiating position is still good, but we had to come to terms and conditions, to start concrete negotiations with the EU.”
Davis was the British Brexit Minister since 2016.
The European Commission does not react to the departure of Davis but says to continue with the negotiations.
