CNBC reported that the political race to determine the next United Kingdom Prime Minister has begun. The next prime minister will be given the task of delivering Brexit to the residents of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Prime Minister and Conservative Party leader, Theresa May resigned on Friday, May 28, 2019. It was the political stalling tactic of attempting to create an accurate Brexit plan led to May’s downfall. She will leave office on June 7.
The Brexit political action was postponed to late October after the U.K. government missed the deadline March 29.
The first round to determine the next leader of the Conservative Party will begin in June. The next head of this party could potentially become the nation’s next Prime Minister.
On May 28, Foreign Secretary and Tory leadership candidate, Jeremy Hunt said that the Labour Party would likely assume power if the U.K. did not make a Brexit deal with the European Union. He also stated the Tory party will likely lose in the general election.
Another Prime Minister contender, Esther McVey stated that the nation will commit political suicide if they do not leave the E.U. by the new deadline on Oct. 31, 2019.
The general race to replace May as prime minister will begin in early June. The candidates have started to debate current issues.
Candidates Vying For Next Prime Minister of Britain
Andrea Leadsom, the House Commission Leader, is the final member of May’s government to resign. She has been involved with the Brexit movement since it originally began in 2016. The function of the House Commission leader is to act as a liaison between the U.K. government and the House of Commons. Also, her role tends to consists of great tension between the executive and legislative branch of government in Winchester.
Matt Hancock is the health and social service minister in the U.K., also in the past, he was an economist for the Bank of England. Hancock stated that it is a significant and important assignment for the Conservative party to complete the Brexit deal. Additionally, the news outlet is a popular news outlet in the United Kingdom of Great Britan and Northern Ireland.
Roy Stewart is not as publicly targeted as his political competitors competing for the Brittish Conservative party nomination. CNBC reported that Stewart published a book about him walking across Afghanistan roughly 20 years ago. The book was set months after the terrorist attacks against the United States on Sep. 11, 2001.
The notion of a sudden and chaotic succession of the U.K. from the European Union has risen. May ignores bringing attention to Brexit, and Brittan has not left the political and economic union almost three years after Brexit was voted upon in the island nation.
