Alexandre Afonso on possible Brexit coalition
How can the United Kingdom find coalitions for a Brexit? Alexandre Afonso, Assistant Professor at the Institute for Public Administration, analysed how the Members of Parliament voted up to now and presents a graph with possible coalitions on several withdrawal agreements. The article is published in the Washington Post.
The MPs have voted on eight motions for Brexit so far. Based on these votes, Afonso shows where possible coalitions on a succesful Brexit might be. There is polarisation, but there are options. 'The graph suggests that the customs union and Common Market 2.0 are the most promising options for coalition building,' stated Afonso.
