After humiliation in effort to find a compromise Brexit deal, British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced to quit as Conservative leader on 7th of June, paving the way for a contest to decide a new Prime Minister.
In a statement in Downing Street, she said she has done her best to honour the 2016 EU referendum result. She said it would remain a matter of deep regret that she was unable to deliver Brexit. Theresa May said she will continue to serve as prime minister until a Conservative leadership contest takes place.
“It is now clear to me that it is in the best interests of the country for a new prime minister to lead that effort. So I am today announcing that I will resign as leader of the Conservative and Unionist Party on Friday the 7th of June,” May said. She endured crises and humiliation in her effort to find a compromise Brexit deal that parliament could ratify, and bequeaths a deeply divided country and a political elite that is deadlocked over how, when or whether to leave the EU.
