(Worthy News) - The European Council on Thursday offered the UK two different Brexit extension options.

The UK has been seeking an extension for the Article 50 exit process to allow for an orderly exit.

The offer:

    Option 1: If the UK parliament votes for the withdrawal agreement next week, it can delay exiting until May 22 to ratify the text.
    Option 2: If it does not approve the deal, the EU will offer a shorter extension until April 12.
    If it rejects the deal and takes the shorter extension, it can then decide whether to seek a much longer delay and vote in the European elections, or whether to leave on May 22 with no deal.
