UK lawmakers will vote again on Brexit on Friday

London (CNN)The UK Parliament will vote Friday on Theresa May’s Brexit deal for a third and possibly final time, the British government confirmed. But the arrangements are, unsurprisingly, mired in confusion and controversy.

Andrea Leadsom, leader of the House of Commons, told lawmakers that the government had decided to split the Withdrawal Agreement — which sets the divorce terms — from its associated Political Declaration, which deals with the future relationship between the UK and the European Union.
That split has enraged opposition Labour lawmakers — and some Conservatives — who think it contravenes the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, which demands that the whole thing be ratified together.
