The head of the conservative government has met at her official residence at 10 Downing Street with the president of her parliamentary group, Graham Brady, to determine the process of his departure, after the strong internal pressures of his party by the failure of his administration in the process of “Brexit”.
“I have been the second female prime minister, but surely not the last,” said May, who noted with emotion that it has been “the greatest honor” of her life.
The “premier” will, however, be at the head of the Executive during this internal election process, which will begin, according to the media, after the state visit by the president of the United States, Donald Trump, between 3 and 5 June.
The meeting between May and Brady, who is chairman of the so-called 1922 Committee, took place one day after the British voted in the European elections, in which Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party is the favourite, although the results will be known on Sunday night once the rest of the European Union (EU) countries have voted.
In the last few days, May, who has so far managed to hold on to the leadership despite strong internal pressure to resign, suffered a severe blow when MPs and some ministers expressed their opposition to her latest attempt to get her “Brexit” agreement approved, even though it was rejected by Parliament on three occasions.
