Queen to Suspend Parliament at Boris Johnson's Request .

Hours after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked Queen Elizabeth II to suspend Parliament, she obliged.

Parliament will be suspended from the second week of September until October 14, reconvening just two weeks prior to the Brexit deadline.

Johnson says that the move is necessary for him to develop a plan for his new government.

We're not going to wait until October 31st before getting on with our plans to take this country forward.

This is a new government with a very exciting agenda, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, via statement.

Critics say his request leaves lawmakers hardly any time to push back on a no-deal Brexit.

Parliament member Anna Soubry and opposition lawmaker Yvette Cooper both tweeted their stance on the matter
