Days after people of Great Britain voted to leave European Union, the speculations regarding the process which will ensue and complications that might occur are still ripe.
While many believe that UK’s passage to move out of EU is cleared after a referendum in which about 52 per cent voted for ‘leave’ against 48 per cent who chose ‘remain’ as preferred option, there are reports that suggest it is easier said than done.
According to a latest report published in Independent, leading lawyers including the Doughty Street Chambers founder Geoffrey Robertson QC opine that the British Parliament ‘must still vote on a bill’ so as to confirm Britain’s exit from EU.

Robertson was quoted as saying “a new bill needs to be passed to repeal the 1972 European Communities Act.”
Moreover, as per article 50 of Libson Treaty and European Union Act 2011, the constitutional process of a particular state or member needs to be followed for it to leave.
This new development is expected to create more confusion regarding the Brexit which has already affected the global economy.
