U.K.: Prime Minister May Survives Leadership Challenge

HeadlineDec 13, 2018

In Britain, Prime Minister Theresa May has survived a “no confidence” vote, ensuring she will stay in power as contentious Brexit negotiations move forward.

Prime Minister Theresa May: “So here is our renewed mission: delivering the Brexit that people voted for, bringing the country back together and building a country that truly works for everyone.”

Earlier this week, May halted a parliamentary vote on a Brexit deal after members of her Conservative Party said they would oppose it. She is scheduled to meet with European leaders in Brussels today, though European Union officials have said they will not reopen negotiations on Brexit.
