Members of Parliament (MPs) were expected to vote against another call by Johnson for a snap general election on Monday. Johnson had set up the suspension - called a prorogation - last month in what opponents cast as an attempt to sideline lawmakers as he attempts to pull the country out of the European Union by October 31, with or without a withdrawal deal.

Asked if the United Kingdom would depart on time, he claimed: "Positive".

Two applications had been made for emergency Parliamentary debates on Monday, one about the rule of law and the other to press for the disclosure of internal communications between a group of Johnson aides regarding the suspension of Parliament as well as documents relating to the government's plan for a no-deal Brexit since July 23, BBC News reported. "We must get Brexit done because the UK must come out on October 31, or else I fear that permanent damage will be done to confidence in our democracy in the UK", Johnson said.

Johnson had hoped his threat to walk away without a deal would persuade them to renegotiate, and says MPs' actions have undermined his strategy.
