London: British Prime Minister Theresa May today said that she has done everything she could to convince MPs to back the Brexit deal but “sadly” since she could not do so, it is in the best interests of the country for a new Prime Minister to lead that effort.

It is, and will always remain, a matter of deep regret to me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit. – Theresa May, British Prime Minister

Theresa May announced that that she would be resigning as leader of the Conservative and Unionist Party on Friday 7 June so that a successor could be chosen.

The Prime Minister said that she has agreed with the Party Chairman and with the Chairman of the 1922 Committee that the process for electing a new leader should begin in the following week.

Theresa May has also kept the Queen fully informed of her intentions, and would continue to serve as her Prime Minister until the process gets concluded.
