Withdrawal from the European Union
In addition, one of the issues of "discord" within the Union is the alleged conflict of interest of one of the EU leaders, according to European media.
Instead of leading the EU into a more integrated post-Brexit era, three major institutions that have to cooperate to make the Union function effectively — the Council, Commission and Parliament — are fighting each other.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said today that it is up to the European Union to decide on a delay for Brexit, but the UK should leave the bloc on October 31, Reuters reported.
"It's in their (EU) power now to decide whether or not to have an extension. What we have is a great deal on the table."
