Theresa May MP

Theresa May is set to become the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister following the withdrawal of Andrea Leadsom from the Conservative Party Leadership challenge.

The current Prime Minister, David Cameron, will chair his final Cabinet meeting on Tuesday morning, followed by his final Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons on Wednesday at lunchtime. He will then travel to Buckingham Palace where he will inform the Queen he is resigning his position in the Government.

Following this – and subject to the 1922 Committee’s approval – Theresa May will be invited by the Queen to become the 13th Prime Minister of Elizabeth II’s reign.

Standing outside 10 Downing Street David Cameron said: “There will be a new prime minister by Wednesday evening”

Theresa May campaigned and voted to remain part of the European Union during the recent referendum, but has said since that as Prime Minister she will follow through the result of the public vote and negotiate Britain’s exit from the European Union. She has also said that she would not call an early general election, but wait until 2020 when the five year Parliamentary period has concluded.

Andrea Leadsom, the only other Conservative Party member who was left in the leadership race, campaigned for the UK to leave the EU and became a recognisable face over the referendum campaign debating alongside Boris Johnson during the BBC’s referendum debate in June.

During her speech where she announced she would be withdrawing from the leadership race she said that “a nine week leadership campaign is highly undesireable” and that “strong leadership is needed urgently to begin the work of withdrawing from the European Union.”

However during an interview with The Times newspaper she came under scrutiny for suggesting that she would make a better Prime Minister due to her being a monther suggesting being a mother meant she had “a very real stake” in the future of Britain.

She has since apologised to Theresa May who is not a mother: “I’ve already said to Theresa how very sorry I am for any hurt I have caused.”

The chair of the 1922 Committee (the Conservative Party¬†managing committee) Graham Brady said that: “I will consult with the Conservative board before formally confirming Theresa May as Leader.” He is expected to make a statement at around 17:00 later today.
