Theresa May to resign before next Brexit negotiation


London, Mar 27: Theresa May tells Conservative MPs she will not remain as UK PM for the next phase of Brexit negotiations.

 Theresa May to resign before next Brexit negotiation

In a meeting with legislators from her Conservative party on Wednesday, May said she would quit if the twice-defeated divorce deal she negotiated with the European Union passes at a third vote.

"We need to get the deal through and deliver Brexit," May told lawmakers, according to a statement from her office.

"I am prepared to leave this job earlier than I intended in order to do what is right for our country and our party."

Her decision came just two hours before MPs start a flurry of votes seeking a last-minute alternative Brexit plan to replace her deal.

Britain was due to leave the European Union on March 29 but has been granted a delay until April 12, after parliament overwhelmingly rejected May's agreement on two occasions.
