Who is Theresa May? Meet the UK's New Prime Minister

David Cameron has announced that he will be stepping down from his position as the UK Prime Minister on Wednesday (July 13), making way for Theresa May to take his place.

The 59-year-old British politician, who has served as the Home Secretary since 2010, will be receiving the job by default as no one else seems to want it. The only other contender, Andrea Leadsom, quit the race on Monday.

Theresa was on the “remain” side of the Brexit vote, though she has promised to implement Brexit to go along with the wishes of the voters.

“We’re not going to have a prolonged Conservative leadership election campaign. I think Andrea Leadsom has made absolutely the right decision to stand aside and it’s clear Theresa May has the overwhelming support of the Conservative parliamentary party,” David said in a statement. “I’m also delighted that Theresa May will be the next Prime Minister. She is strong, she is competent, she’s more than able to provide the leadership that our country is going to need in the years ahead and she will have my full support.”

“Obviously with these changes, we now don’t need to have a prolonged period of transition, and so tomorrow I will chair my last Cabinet meeting, on Wednesday I will attend the House of Commons for Prime Minister’s Questions, and then after that I expect to go to the Palace to offer my resignation so we’ll have a new Prime Minister in that building behind me by Wednesday evening,” he concluded.

    “Will be receiving the job by default as no one seemed to want it?” Really???🙄 Her opponent steped aside because of the backlash she received in an interview earlier this week, not to mention the fact that Leadsom did not have the numbers in support that Teresa May has.

    Just stick to celebrities.
