UK’s Evening Standard reports, “Theresa May resigns: Prime Minister in tears as she tells UK she will quit on June 7 with leadership in tatters over Brexit.“
Her voice breaking with emotion, Mrs May said: “I will shortly leave the job that it has been the honour of my life to hold.
“The second female prime minister, but certainly not the last. I do so with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love.”
Standing in Downing Street, Mrs May announced she will resign formally as Tory leader on June 7 and leave as Prime Minister when her successor is chosen, probably in mid to late July.
