Theresa May to Step Down Once Brexit Is Delivered
The British Prime Minister has promised her Conservative colleagues she will stand down if they back her withdrawal agreement with the E.U. The party leader had not set a date for departure but indicated to lawmakers she would not stay in post for the next stage of negotiations. The U.K. was due to leave the bloc on Mar. 29 but a delay has been agreed after the Prime Minister’s exit deal was twice rejected by MPs.
What next? A vote is to take place this evening so parliament can indicate preferred Brexit options while May wants a third vote on her deal this week.
