He left Friday on the leadership of the ruling British Conservative Party, due to the failure of the Parliament to accept the agreement on the conditions for the termination of the British EU membership (Brexit). Leaving the government party also ends with the termination of the post of prime minister, but until the election of the successor, that is, it is expected to be the executive director for more than a month.
Theresa May announced on May 24 that he would leave the party’s leadership on June 7, after he had failed to accept, with three attempts, the agreement reached with the European Union in November on the terms of Brexit.
Mayt, who was a Minister of Interior for six years, was elected as the leader of the Conservative Party and thus the head of government after the referendum on British EU membership in 2016. \ t His predecessor, David Cameron, who campaigned for retention prior to the referendum, resigned after a narrow 51.89 percent victory for supporters, returned his parliamentary mandate, and left the British politics. For the time being, Theresa May has not indicated whether or not she will leave the parliament after her actual departure in July, or take up a seat in the back of the lower house of the Conservative Party.
The successor competition to be launched next week is expected to last until the second half of July, although the conservative faction has modified the rules to speed up the process. One of the essential elements of the change is that instead of the two prescribed so far, candidates must obtain the support of at least eight Lower House tory members.
Under the new rules, the first and second rounds of fractional voting are no longer sufficient to remain competitive, so that the candidate is given the least number of votes: in the first round of voting, at least five percent of the votes of the conservative group of 313 must be obtained; In this round, this retention threshold will rise to 10 percent. If in the first two rounds each starter crosses the minimum required voting ratio, then the original rule that the candidate with the least number of faction draws out of the competition will come into effect again.
The entry deadline is next Monday. The first round of voting will be held next Thursday, the next one on 18, 19 and 20 June, on the basis of the current agenda. Out of the last two candidates remaining in the competition – if none of them return to the other – 160,000 registered members of the Conservative Party can elect Theresa May’s successor, who will be the next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
The number of successor candidates is currently 11.
Among the best-known starters is Boris Johnson’s former foreign minister, the frontman of the hard-line tory Brexit camp – who is currently considered as the most successful offspring of betting offices – by Sajid Javid, Minister of Health Matt Hancock, Minister of Foreign Affairs Jeremy Hunt, Michael Gove Minister of Environment Andrea Leadsom former head of the House of Commons, Dominic Raab, former Minister of Brexit Affairs and Rory Stewart, Head of International Development.
