JAKARTA (TheInsiderStories) – United Kingdom (UK) Prime Minister Theresa May said she would resign as a Conservative leader on June 7, she said on Friday (05/24) evening. In an emotional statement, May said she had done his best to provide the best policy line for her supporters in the Brexit issue.
But she ended up deadlocked due to strong opposition from Parliament and the European Union. May said she had done everything to convince Parliamentarians to support a withdrawal agreement negotiated with the EU, but now it might be better for her country if the people must choose a new leader to negotiate the interests of the country.
“Such a consensus can only be reached if those on all sides of the debate are willing to compromise,” she said while adding that, to deliver Brexit, her successor must establish an agreement in Parliament.
“I do so with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love,” she added.
Earlier, May offered to members of the United Kingdom parliament the opportunity to vote whether to hold a new referendum on state membership in the EU.
May submitted the offer as part of an effort to persuade Parliament to support a divorce agreement that would allow Britain to leave the EU regularly.
She called on the House of Commons to vote in early June on the bill for the withdrawal agreement, in what he called “the last opportunity” to seal the Brexit agreement.
But May’ Brexit agreement was blocked by too many members of his own Parliament, she tried to reach all the Commons. In addition, in proposing a vote in the referendum, many members of Parliament received another public voting.
While, several members of her cabinet maneuvered to replace their approval of her latest plan, effectively removing her compromise and leadership.
With the announcement of her resignation, May said she was still willing to serve as Prime Minister, while awaiting the election of the new Conservative leader which will begin next week.
In a dependent parliament, May left the question of whether the next Conservative leader would succeed or would suffer a similar fate, and something more radical would be needed: no agreement, new referendum or general election.
Meanwhile, Labor Leader Jeremy Corbyn said he was “entitled to resign” and that the Conservative Party was now “destroyed”.
“Theresa May is right to resign. She’s now accepted what the country’s known for months: she can’t govern, and nor can her divided and disintegrating party,” he said on Twitter.
“Whoever becomes the new Tory leader must let the people decide our country’s future, through an immediate General Election,” he continued.
May is still honoured when US President Donald Trump will visit England in early June with her position still as Prime Minister.
