On Friday British Prime Minister Theresa May announced she would resign as her nation's leader. The main reason, what the prime minister described as a deep regret that she was unable to deliver the Brexit, an international agreement on how Britain would leave the European Union. The deal that Prime Minister May had with the EU needed to be approved by Britain's parliament to take effect and it never was.
She said that though it was right for her to keep trying, even when the odds against success seemed high, it's now clear to her that a new prime minister would be in Britain's best interest. There are several members of her political party, Britain's Conservative Party, who are hoping to replace May as prime minister. Lawmakers say they plan to choose a new leader by July 20th and May will serve until then.
But whoever gets the job will still have the challenge of forging a Brexit plan that both Britain's parliament and the European Union agree to. If one isn't reached, what's called a No-Deal Brexit could happen, when Britain suddenly breaks off from the union of 27 other countries leaving a lot of questions in the air about economics, immigration, trade deals basically how Britain conducts business in politics with the rest of Europe and the rest of the world.
梅表示，尽管在获胜几率很小的情况下继续尝试是她的权利，但很明显，现在最符合英国利益的做法是选出新任首相 。梅领导的英国保守党有多位成员希望取代梅的首相之位 。议员表示，他们计划在7月20日前选出新任领导人，在那之前梅将继续任职 。
无论继任者是谁，制定出英国议会和欧盟一致同意的脱欧计划依然是摆在其面前的挑战 。如果无法达成协议，那可能会发生无协议协议，而英国突然终止与欧盟其余27个成员国的联系会引发许多问题，这些问题涉及经济、移民和贸易协议等，核心问题在于，英国在政治上如何与欧洲及全球其他国家往来 。
