The announcement of May’s resignation will set off a frantic race to succeed her. One leading candidate is Boris Johnson, the buffoonish but wily former Foreign Secretary who commands significant support among grassroots members of the party.
Theresa May met with the chair of the influential 1922 committee – a group of MPs who represent the Conservative Party’s backbenchers – on Friday morning where she announced the timetable for her departure.
Among rising tensions between the PM and many of her party, she confirmed she will resign as Conservative Party leader on June 7 so a successor can be chosen. The start of the official race for the next leader of the Conservative party and Prime Minister will start in the week after.
The Mirror reported Theresa May spent Thursday night at her constituency home with her husband after plans to bring her Brexit plan to the House of Commons hit a brick wall.
