Theresa May has said she will quit as Conservative leader on June 7th, paving the way for a contest to decide a new prime minister. In an emotional statement in Downing Street, May said she had “done my best” to honour the 2016 EU referendum result. It would remain a matter of “deep regret” that she had been unable to deliver Brexit, she added. But a new PM was “in the best interests of the country”. May said she will continue to serve as prime minister while a Conservative leadership contest takes place. She will step down as Tory leader on June 7th and a leadership contest is due to begin the following week.
