Following the election, Mr Johnson’s Brexit deal was approved in the Commons by 358 to 234 votes. With his improved mandate, Mr Johnson will now go to Brussels with the ability to push through with negotiations.
However, speaking to Express.co.uk, Dominic Walsh, policy analyst for think-tank, Open Europe warned the EU may not alter its position despite the dynamic between the two now changing.
Mr Walsh said: “They won’t alter their fundamental red lines and priorities for a new Prime Minister or a new Parliament.
“But they will be aware that the election result changes the dynamics.
“They can be more confident now that a deal they agree can actually be ratified on the UK side.

“And they are also adjusting to the differences between Johnson’s stance and May’s – both in terms of the shorter timetable and the more distant relationship he seeks.”
In order to take the UK out of the EU by the end of December 2020, Mr Johnson has removed the right for MPs to approve an extension to the transition period.
Despite Mr Johnson’s insistence to deliver Brexit by the end of next year, officials from the EU have warned the timetable is too short to complete negotiations.
Writing for the Project Syndicate website, Brussel’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier insisted the timetable will be “immensely challenging”.

He added: “It will be immensely challenging, but we will give it our all, even if we won’t be able to achieve everything.
“Never will it be the EU that fails on common ambition.”
Moreover, with Mr Johnson winning the election, Mr Barnier admitted it is likely the UK will leave come January 31.
He added: “Following the victory of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the Tories in the general election this month, it is now clear that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union on January 31, 2020.

“For many, including me, the occasion will be tinged with regret.
“But it also represents an opportunity to forge a new UK-EU partnership.”
Although Mr Barnier spoke of forging a new relationship between the two countries, the Prime Minister has vowed not to follow any regulatory alignment from Brussels after January 31.
In the wake of the vote on his deal, he also said it was time to “move on” from Brexit and it was now time to “disregard the old labels of Leave and Remain”.
Despite his bold remarks, both Irish Prime Minister, Leo Varadkar and European Council President, Charles Michel insisted a level playing field must be maintained.
Mr Varadkar said: “We don’t want to trade with a Britain that undercuts us, that has lower financial standards, lower product standards, lower health and safety standards, the harder approach being taken by Prime Minister Johnson is a risk to us.”
Following that line, Mr Michel said: “A level playing field remains a must for any future relationship.”

The Irish Prime Minister has also stated Mr Johnson is on course to deliver a “hard Brexit”.
With that in mind, he also added a trade deal between the two may be difficult to strike.
He concluded: “It is going to be difficult to secure a good trade deal for Ireland, principally because Boris Johnson has fixed on a harder Brexit than we anticipated under his predecessor, or at the time of the referendum, and that is one where he talks very much about divergence.”
