New British Prime Minister Emerges
Theresa May is to become the UK’s prime minister on Wednesday evening – after David Cameron announced he would quit after Prime Minister’s Questions.
Speaking outside 10 Downing Street, Mr Cameron said he would offer his resignation to the Queen on Wednesday afternoon at Buckingham Palace.
Mrs May’s only rival to succeed Mr Cameron as Conservative leader, Andrea Leadsom, pulled out earlier on Monday.
Mr Cameron, PM since 2010, said he would quit after the UK’s Brexit vote.
He said he would be chairing his final cabinet meeting on Tuesday.
