May officially resigns Conservative Party leadership

Theresa May is today officially resigning her leadership of the Conservative Party, but will remain as Prime Minister until a successor is chosen.

Theresa May announced her resignation two weeks ago, when she had stated that she greatly regretted having been unable to implement Brexit.

Britain’s exit from the European Union characterised Theresa May’s term of office in 10 Downing street.

It had originally been planned that the UK would leave the European Union on 29 March, but this had been postponed to 12 April, and eventually, it should now take place at the end of October.

Eleven Conservative Members of Parliament have expressed interest in replacing Theresa May as party leader, and eventually as Prime Minister. The nominations open and close on Monday.

This means that in reality, Theresa May will continue running the party until the new leader is announced on 22 July.

Meanwhile, the British public are losing confidence in the Conservative Party. In a by-election in Peterborough, the Conservative Party ended up in third place, after the Labour Party and the Brexit Party.
