The EU expects a vote on the withdrawal agreement as soon as possible, said President of the European Council Charles Michel on Friday.

Speaking to reporters on the second day of EU leaders’ summit, Michel said on the U.K. elections that "EU is ready for the next phase".

“We will negotiate a future trade deal which ensures a true level playing field,” he added.

Michel also congratulated U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson on his victory.

Britain’s leading Conservative Party won Thursday’s early general election after securing more than 326 seats in the House of Commons, according to results declared in 649 constituencies of a total of 650.

The Tories have won 364 seats in the House of Commons, passing well over the 326 mark for outright majority.
