Protesters rallying outside the Supreme Court on Tuesday said the Prime Minister’s decision to prorogue parliament was “undemocratic”.
The country’s highest court of appeal began hearing legal arguments about whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Johnson’s decision to prorogue Parliament was lawful after two separate legal cases in lower courts resulted in conflicting rulings.
In one case, anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller and former British prime minister John Major asserted that the suspension of Parliament was an abuse of power, and lost.
In the other, Scottish lawmaker Joanna Cherry put forward similar arguments and won.
The Supreme Court has joined the two cases together and its 11 judges will make a final ruling.
