BY NT CORRESPONDENT IN BRITAIN.

British Prime Minister David Cameron will step downtomorrow, Wednesday July 13 2016, paving way for home secretary Theresa May to succeed him as Britain’s leader.

Cameron said it was clear May has “the overwhelming support” of Conservative lawmakers. He said May’s rival Andrea Leadsom made the right decision to withdraw from the race, ending the party leadership race.

Cameron said he will attend a final session of Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons on Wednesday before going to visit Queen Elizabeth II and tendering his resignation.
The queen has the formal role of appointing the new leader.

Earlier on Monday, Andrea Leadsom withdrew from the race to replace Cameron, leaving May as the sole remaining candidate to lead the Conservative Party.

May will be the second British prime minister after Margaret Thatcher.

Cameron announced his resignation after British voters rejected his advice and chose to leave the European Union in a referendum last month, though he wasn’t expected to step down until September.
