    The British Supreme Court has ruled Prime Minister Boris Johnson's decision to suspend the country's parliament for five weeks "unlawful, void and of no effect." The verdict paves the way for the UK House of Commons to reconvene tomorrow.

The suspension of parliament is an "inherently and fundamentally political" matter and is not something for the judiciary to decide, the government's lawyer Sir James Eadie argued before the UK Supreme Court.

    The United Kingdom is heading towards an uncertain future since Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Members of Parliament (MP) still cannot agree on Brexit. Parliament just entered a five-week-long suspension ahead of the October 31 Brexit deadline. Ahead of the parliament's shutdown, Johnson hoped to call a snap election for mid-October but failed twice to secure the required two-thirds majority in the Lower House of Commons. Instead, the MPs passed a bill designed to delay the Brexit deadline beyond October if the UK failed to reach a deal with the European Union.
