Brexit vote denied: Why has John Bercow rejected Brexit vote? How does he have such power?


How is John Bercow able to have such power?

As Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow presides over the House’s debates, determining which members may speak.

According to parliamentary rules, the Speaker is the highest authority of the House of Commons and has final say over how its business is conducted, as well as other key choices, for example, which tabled amendments are selected for votes.

In his role, Mr Bercow is the chief officer and highest authority of the House of Commons and must remain politically impartial at all times.
