Theresa May called the election to garner stronger support and more power when discussing Brexit with the EU. However, this seems to have totally backfired raising questions as to who will negotiate Brexit and what sort of Brexit the country will look for.
Speaking on German radio, the EU’s German commissioner Gunther Oettinger said that he is unsure whether Brexit talks will be able to follow the schedule.
Alexander Stubb, former prime minister of Finland, said on Twitter, “(It) looks like we might need a time-out in the Brexit negotiations. Time for everyone to regroup.”
The European Commission, which negotiates Brexit on behalf of the 27 other countries, hadn’t yet reacted to the outcome of the British vote by 8:00 a.m. London time.
