UPDATE 2-EU Parliament says it will decide on Brexit deal in new year

The European Parliament said on Thursday it will analyse the post-Brexit trade deal clinched by the EU and Britain in detail before deciding whether to approve the agreement in the new year.

If the EP approves all 27 member states will also have to approve.

New deadline:

"EU states are now working to implement the deal by Jan. 1 through a fast-track procedure known as "provisional application". However, the European Commission said in publishing the treaty that the fast-track approach would hold only until end-February as the European Parliament's consent - expected in the first weeks of 2021 - is still needed to permanently apply it."
