Last week, UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokesperson said that the government wouldn’t be revoking the Article 50 notice that triggered the Brexit process.

The European Court of Justice’s Advocate General Manuel Campos Sánchez-Bordona announced on Tuesday that the United Kingdom had the right to unilaterally change its mind about leaving the bloc. The opinion is non-binding, but is likely to be followed by the panel of judges.

‘Advocate General Campos Sanchez-Bordona proposes that the Court of Justice should declare that Article 50… allows the unilateral revocation of the notification of the intention to withdraw from the EU’,the EU’s top court said in a statement.

The UK parliament will begin five-day debates on Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit proposal on 4 December and will vote on the deal, endorsed by the EU, on 11 December.
