Storyline


The race for UK's next prime minister has barely begun after incumbent PM Theresa May announced her resignation on Friday in a tearful address, and members of the British Conservative Party are already calling for their next leader to be someone capable of leading the country out of the European Union.

In front of the 10 Downing Street – the official residence and the office of the British prime minister, May expressed her gratitude to have the opportunity to serve the country that she loves. But she couldn't hold back her tears before she finished her emotional announcement, and immediately turned around and walked quickly towards the building, leaving reporters with a saddening back view.

After failing to deliver a Brexit deal that can be accepted by the British parliament, May's own Tory Party on Wednesday started a special procedure to force her out and elect a new leader that will automatically become the next British prime minister.

"She ends up pleasing nobody. She neither pleases those who want a hard Brexit in her own party, and those of the opposition parties who want a soft Brexit. And in the end, they all voted against her, but never in favor of her proposals, or never in favor of anything else," said Professor Tony Travers from London School of Economics and Politics.

Right after her announcement, Conservative Party members gathered outside of the parliament building to discuss about the coming election of the party leader. Many called for a new PM that truly believes in Brexit and could lead the country out of the EU.

"This is a sad day in a way, but I called for a year for the prime minister to resign. So I must be a hypocrite, I called for this. What I think is important now is that we rapidly move on to pick a new prime minister, someone that voted for Brexit in our referendum three years ago, someone that really believes in Brexit, and someone that can lead us out of the European Union as scheduled on the 31st of October," said Marc Francois, member of the lower house.

Among the candidates, Boris Johnson, the former Foreign Secretary who is pro-Brexit, is expected to be one of the front runners.

"That person to me, there's only one candidate, and that's Boris Johnson, the former Foreign Secretary," said Peter Bone, another member of the lower house.

Jeremy Hunt, the current Foreign Secretary who supported Britain remaining in the EU in the 2016 referendum, is also believed to be another candidate.

Analysts say that a new PM is expected to be picked by the end of July, but whoever May's successor will be, he or she is going to face the same political chaos brought by the EU withdrawal plan.

Now the options the UK has include a no-deal Brexit, a second referendum, canceling Brexit, or major renegotiation; anyone of which is expected to bring more uncertainties to the British political arena.
