E.U.

Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker also praised the deal, saying it provides “certainty.”.

This deal provides certainty, where Brexit creates uncertainty … the deal is not about us -- the deal is about people and peace.

The U.K. Parliament will now gather on Saturday to vote on the proposed “Withdrawal Agreement.”.

A number of opposition parties are already criticizing the deal however, with the Labour Party calling it an “even worse deal than Theresa May’s.”.

The Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) has also released a statement against the deal.

.

As things stand, we could not support what is being suggested on customs and consent issues, and there is a lack of clarity on VAT … We will continue to work with the government to try and get a sensible deal that works for Northern Ireland and protects the economic and constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom, Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), via statement
