LONDON (AP) – David Cameron says he will resign by Wednesday, Theresa May to be next British Prime Minister
The head of the committee running the Conservative leadership contest says it and the party board will meet to discuss confirming Theresa May as the winner of the race and Britain’s next prime minister.
May’s only opponent, Andrea Leadsom, has dropped out of the contest, saying she does not have enough support.
Graham Brady, who heads the party’s policymaking 1922 Committee, said he would consult the board on Monday before formally confirming that May is the new leader.
He did not suggest re-opening the contest, saying May is now the only contender.
Asked if May would be declared leader by the end of the day he said “it won’t take nine weeks” – the time the race had been due to last.
