UK leadership race begins

British Prime Minister Theresa May has resigned, triggering a contest that will bring a new leader to power, with most of the frontrunners expected to push for a cleaner break with the European Union.

UK leadership race begins


Several of the leading candidates to become Britain's next prime minister launched their leadership campaigns on Monday (June 10), as the crowded contest officially begins.

Britain is seeking a new leader after Theresa May announced she would resign, having failed to deliver Brexit on schedule in March and seen her authority over a divided parliament evaporate after three heavy defeats in votes to approve her exit deal.

May's successor will inherit Britain's deepest political crisis in decades over how, when and whether it should leave the EU.

The next leader's choices will affect the country's future role on the world stage and prosperity for generations to come.

Nominations for the contest will open on Monday, with each of the 11 hopeful needing to secure at least eight backers among the Conservatives' 300-plus elected lawmakers.

Voting later in the week will whittle the field down further.
