Responding to concerns the government could ignore the legislation, Foreign Minister Dominic Raab earlier told parliament that the government would respect the rule of law but added, "Sometimes it can be more complex because there are conflicting laws or competing legal advice".
"And I can tell you this: We're ready for that election".
Mr Corbyn recommitted to a second referendum on Brexit, which he said would include a "credible option to Leave" as well as Remain.
Politicians and political commentators are now left to ponder how the Brexit impasse will be resolved.
The prime minister, well aware that many voters are exhausted of the whole thing, claims he doesn't want an election but sees it as the only way to make Brexit happen.
Mr. Johnson took a tentative step toward starting negotiations on Monday during a meeting in Dublin with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.
Johnson may not consider Farage a friend, but Farage extended Johnson an olive branch last week, saying, "If Boris decides the only way forward, to get Brexit delivered, is through a general election offering people a clean break, in those circumstances, I'm 100% behind him wanting to win the election, there would be a non-aggression pact".
Earlier Tuesday, Ursula von der Leyen, a former German defence minister who will become president of the EU's executive branch in November, said a no-deal Brexit "will be way more hard than an orderly Brexit".
They said "there is time" to secure a Brexit deal in Parliament with a "sizeable voice building across the House" to achieve it by Halloween.
Commons Speaker John Bercrow said Johnson's action "represents an act of executive fiat".
In a session that ran well into the wee hours, Parliament also ordered the government to release private communications about its Brexit plans.
Those calling for the documents to be published say they will show the decision to suspend parliament was politically motivated, as a way to limit discussion on Brexit.
Johnson's Conservative party has been to a large degree purged of moderates who did not share his willingness to countenance a "no-deal" Brexit divorce from the European Union and all the economic risks that entails.
With the future of Brexit mired in uncertainty, Parliament was suspended until Oct 14, sparking tense scenes in the House of Commons, where opposition lawmakers held signs reading "silenced" and yelled "shame on you" at the ruling Conservatives.
Mrs Foster added the Prime Minister demonstrated his "commitment to securing a deal which works for the entire United Kingdom" as well as the Republic of Ireland, including rejecting the idea of a Northern Ireland-only backstop - which would have created a special economic zone for the country. "We must be prepared to come out without one", he said on Tuesday.
These groups banded together to block Johnson's bid for an immediate election, but it's not clear if they could bury past rivalries and find common ground in a longer campaign. British Brexit supporters oppose the backstop because it locks Britain into European Union trade rules to avoid customs checks, something they say will stop the U.K. from striking new trade deals with countries such as the United States.
"Throughout my time as speaker, I have sought to increase the relative authority of this legislature, for which I will make absolutely no apology", he said.
It is also far from certain that there would be enough support because Johnson has lost his majority and many eurosceptics in his party oppose May's deal for other reasons.
