LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's environment minister and prominent Brexiteer Michael Gove said he hoped Theresa May would remain prime minister after party divisions over her future burst into the open on Friday, revealing a plot by up to 30 lawmakers to unseat her.

"Theresa does have the qualities to be Prime Minister, she's been an excellent prime minister, I hope she carries on as our Prime Minister for years to come," Gove told BBC radio.
