Theresa May announced her readiness to resign

British Prime Minister Theresa May promised the Conservative party deputies that she would leave her post if the Parliament approved her agreement on withdrawal from the European Union.

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Theresa May will not remain in office during the negotiations with the European Union on the terms of future cooperation. She said this at a meeting with members of the ruling Conservative party, reports the Financial Times. May promised colleagues that will leave the post of head of government, if the majority of deputies of the House of Commons will ratify her treaty on the conditions of withdrawal of Britain from the EU, which she agreed with Brussels in November.

Earlier, May tried to approve the provisions of the agreement twice – in January and March. The first time its draft treaty failed with a difference of 230 votes, the second time – with a difference of 149 votes. 238 members of the opposition Labour party and 75 conservatives in particular voted against the May’s treaty in March. After the failure May tried to convince colleagues to approve the agreement with the third attempt.
