British Prime Minister Theresa May Announces Resignation
May announced her resignation Friday morning, just days after unveiling her latest Brexit deal.
British Prime Minister Theresa May announced her resignation Friday morning.
May said in a speech, "I will shortly leave the job that it has been the honor of my life to hold. The second female prime minister, but certainly not the last. I do so with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love."
"I negotiated the terms of our exit and new relationship with our closest neighbors that protects jobs our security and our union. I have done everything I can to convince MPs to back that deal. Sadly I have not been able to do so," May said.
May will officially step down as party leader on June 7 and the process of electing a new leader is expected to start the following week. She says she'll stay on as prime minister until that new leader is elected.
