“Today I announce that I will resign as the leader of the Conservative and Unionist Party on Friday, June 7,” Ms. May told reporters on Downing Street after talks with her political union colleagues.

She reported that she has already informed the Queen of Great Britain Elizabeth II. The Prime Minister also agreed with the chairman of the party that the new party leader would be elected within a week after she left.

Earlier, the British newspaper The Times reported that Theresa May announced her resignation on May 24. One of the possible reasons for such a decision could be unwillingness of the government to support the new version of the Brexit deal, which was presented on May 21. This document suggests that the government should draw up a “safety plan” for the Irish border by December 2020. In addition, parliamentarians are supposed to be given the right to vote on the need for a new Brexit referendum.

Among the contenders for the post of Prime Minister are former Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, former leader of the House of Commons Andrea Leadsom, current Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt, and also Interior Minister Sajid Javid.
