U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May Announces Resignation

British Prime Minister Theresa May announced Friday that she will resign, ending a struggle to keep her job against anger from her own Conservative Party over her handling of Brexit.

May spoke outside 10 Downing Street after a meeting with Graham Brady, the head of the 1922 Committee of Conservative Party backbenchers. She said she will step down on June 7. A party leadership contest will decide who takes over as prime minister.
