BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission still considers Prime Minister Boris Johnson as its most senior negotiating partner in discussions to avoid a no-deal Brexit, the EU’s executive said on Wednesday following the British leader’s defeat in parliament.

“There is a UK government in place so our interlocutor at the highest political level for (Commission) President Juncker remains Prime Minister Johnson,” a Commission spokeswoman told a regular briefing.
