David Cameron To Resign by Wednesday; Theresa May To Be PM

Posted: Jul 11, 2016 11:15 AM

After Andrea Leadsom dropped out of the Conservative Party leadership election, Theresa May was the last woman left standing and became the leader of the party by default. Seeing this, current Prime Minister David Cameron will resign effective on Wednesday so that May can assume her new role.

Cameron announced his resignation following the Brexit vote. Cameron had been a major figure in the "remain" campaign.

May is the second woman to lead the United Kingdom.

UPDATE: This is quite possibly the most British thing that's ever happened.

UPDATE II: May's election is official.
