Prime Minister, Theresa May of Britain on Friday in tearful speech said she will quit as Conservative leader on the 7th of June.
She surrendered to mounting pressure from her lawmakers in an emotional in Downing Street after almost three years of trying and failing to lead Britain out of the European Union.
According to BBC, Mrs May remain as prime minister until a successor was chosen.
In an emotional statement in Downing Street, Mrs May said she had “done my best” to honour the 2016 EU referendum result.
“I will shortly leave the job that it has been the honour of my life to hold.
“The second female prime minister, but certainly not the last.
“I do so with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love.”
