© Reuters. THERESA MAY WILL ANNOUNCE THE DATE OF HIS RESIGNATION ON FRIDAY
LONDON (Reuters) – The First minister Theresa May is expected to announce on Friday the date of his resignation and the departure should take place after the visit to Britain of us president, Donald Trump, reports the BBC.
The ruling should be expressed as mid-morning, said a number of ministers.
The First minister of a conservative, who has failed three times since mid-January, to adopt the withdrawal agreement negotiated with the Europeans, has shot down his last card on Tuesday by offering closer trade links with the EU and does not exclude the holding of a second referendum.
Its bid has cemented a front of refusal from the more pro-Brexit his party until the labour opposition, with which May has tried in vain for six weeks to find a compromise.
The “Brexiter” Boris Johnson, his former minister of foreign Affairs, for the time being the figure of a favourite for his succession.
Some of the major developments of the day:
09: 10 – MAY WILL make A STATEMENT MID-MORNING
Theresa May will make a statement mid-morning, a-t-on learned from government sources.
07H40 – THE POUND IS SUFFERING AGAINST THE DOLLAR
The pound sterling is evolving not far from its lowest level since January against the us dollar and was almost unchanged against the euro, after having experienced Thursday a 14th consecutive day against the single currency, something never seen before.
