Theresa May to Become the next Prime Minister of UK

Theresa May is to become the UK’s next prime minister after Andrea Leadsom failed to become Conservative Party leader.

The timing of the handover of power from David Cameron is currently being discussed, but could be within days, BBC reports.

Leadsom, who campaigned to leave the EU, said the UK needed “strong and stable government” and that Mrs May was “ideally placed” to implement Brexit.
