Under which conditions would the EU27 agree to an Article 50 extension?

In a country-by-country guide, Open Europe's Anna Nadibaidze looks at possible reasons for which the EU27 would agree to a Brexit delay.  No member state has categorically ruled out a delay, although some leaders expressed concern about the prospect of prolonging Brexit uncertainty.

On 12 March MPs will vote on the latest version of the Withdrawal Agreement, including any legal assurances the Attorney General is able to obtain on the backstop. If they reject the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal once again, there will be a vote on pursuing a No Deal Brexit on 13 March. If this gets rejected as well (and it is very likely to be), MPs will have the opportunity to vote on a “short” extension to Article 50 on March 14.
