Report: British PM May expected to announce departure from office

Published: Updated:

British Prime Minister Theresa May is expected on Friday to announce her departure from office, The Times reported, without citing a source.

May will remain as prime minister while her successor is elected in a two-stage process under which two final candidates face a ballot of 125,000 Conservative Party members, the newspaper said.

Meanwhile, more British ministers could resign from Prime Minister Theresa May’s government, following the Leader of the House of Commons Andrea Leadsom who quit late on Wednesday, BBC Radio said.

“This program has been told other ministers could soon follow,” the BBC Today program reported on Thursday.
