In an emotional public address earlier this week, British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that she will resign from her current position- one which she has held since 2016– on June 7.
Her announcement was delivered after she had met with Sir Graham Brady, the Chairman of the 1992 Committee of Conservative backbench MPs, and in it, she expressed her “deep regret” at not being able to deliver a concrete plan for Britain’s exit from the European Union, despite her multiple attempts and best efforts to do so.
In part, she said, “The Brexit referendum was a call for profound change in our country. I did my best to implement the will of the people.” She also claimed to be the “the second female Prime Minister, but not the last,” while also adding, “It was the honor of my life to serve the country I love.”
She is set to stay in charge on a caretaker basis until a suitable successor for the position is found.
