British Prime Minister, Theresa May, has announced 7th of June date to quit and pave way for a contest to decide a new prime minister.
May while making the announcement in Downing Street said she has done her best to honour the 2016 European Union (EU) result. But however, it remains a matter of deep regrets that she was unable to deliver Brexit.
She also disclosed that a new Prime Minister will be in the best interest of the country. But however, she will continue to serve as Prime Minister while a conservative leadership contest takes place.
Theresa May while acknowledging that she had served with no ill-will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country she loved also said that she been the 2nd female Prime Minister will certainly not be the last.
Meanwhile, Former commons leader Andrea Leadsom, Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd, and Chief Whip Julian Smith have reacted to Mrs May’s announcement via their official twitter handle.
A very dignified speech by
@theresa_may. An illustration of her total commitment to country and duty. She did her utmost, and I wish her all the very best

As a Party we must come together to make a success of the next phase of our Party’s great story. Brexit is a process and compromise is needed to pass a Deal that works for everyone. We must show we can lead this great country to the strong future that I know we can deliver. 2:19 AM – 24 May 2019
