UK PM, May to Quit Office


UK’s Prime Minister, Theresa May will today announce her resignation date. 

May is under mounting pressure from her cabinet and Conservatives Lawmakers following her failure to push through a Brexit deal. 

She angered many conservatives on Tuesday by making a fresh offer on Brexit in a final bid to get her deal through parliament, including compromises on a customs union and a second referendum.

That prompted Andrea Leadsom, the leader of the Commons, to resign, while senior cabinet ministers demanded that Mrs May abandon the new plan, and many MPs stepped up their calls for her to go.

Mrs May is due to meet Sir Graham Brady Chair of the 1922 Committee today. He is likely to re-iterate MPs’ demands that the prime minister set a date for her departure.

Since January, Parliament has rejected the withdrawal agreement Mrs May negotiated with the EU three times. Recent attempts to find a formal compromise with the opposition Labour Party also failed.
