Former UK PM, Theresa May To Quit Parliament.

Former UK PM, Theresa May To Quit Parliament.

Former UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, on Friday announced that she will stand down as a member of parliament at the next general election, due to take place later this year.

67 years old May, is the most senior member of Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s Conservative party to announce they will not seek re-election.

The Tories have consistently trailed the main opposition Labour Party since October 2022 and are widely seen as on course to be dumped out of power after 14 years.

May has represented the constituency of Maidenhead in southeast England since 1997 and served as prime minister between 2016 and 2019 – a tumultuous period in the UK as it attempted to negotiate its departure from the European Union.

May served as interior minister between 2010 and 2016 under then-leader David Cameron.

But he resigned immediately after Britain voted to leave the EU on June 23, 2016, and May became prime minister less than a month later.

She called a general election in 2017 to try to break the logjam over the terms of Britain’s departure from the EU, but the vote ended in a hung parliament.
