British Parliament trigger Vote of No Confidence in Theresa May

A vote of no confidence in the British Prime Minister Theresa May has been triggered by members of the parliament.

According to the Punch the Conservatives MPs triggered the vote, with a ballot expected to hold between 6 PM and 8 PM on Wednesday.

May will need the support of at least 158 MPs from the Conservative Party if she will stay on as Prime Minister, although she could decide not to resign if the figure is below that but significant enough and if May loses that vote, a leadership election will be held and, if a new party leader is elected, he or she becomes the new prime minister.

However May said on Wednesday she will contest a confidence vote in her leadership “with everything I’ve got”, adding that changing course now could derail the Brexit process.

“Weeks spent tearing ourselves apart will only create more divisions,” May said in a statement delivered outside her Downing Street office, adding: “I stand ready to finish the job.”
