UK's May Steps Down, Will Serve As Prime Minister Until Replacement Is Chosen

According to a report by Reuters, on Friday, British Prime Minister Theresa May stepped down as leader of the governing Conservatives, officially triggering a contest to replace her that could see her party take a tougher stance on Brexit.

Last month, May announced that she would step down after failing to deliver Britain's departure from the European Union, worsening a political crisis in a divided country grappling with the results of a 2016 referendum on Brexit.
