British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he is confident that British lawmakers would support the Brexit deal.

In doing so, the Brexit deal could be ratified at parliament on Saturday (19), he said.

Johnson believes that the European Union has approved the Brexit proposals he submitted, and that the agreement could be secured by parliamentary majority consent to enable Britain to leave the EU without a crisis on 31 October.

"I'm very confident that when my colleagues in parliament study this agreement they will want to vote for it on Saturday and then in succeeding days. There is, as I say, a very good case for MPs (lawmakers) across the House of Commons to express the democratic will of the people, as we've expressed many times to do, and to get Brexit done. I don't think there is any case for delay. We should get on and get it done by October 31st," he told the reporters.

Nevertheless, Johnsons call on Brexit had been rejected by the paliament on three occasions.
