May says new government will lead Britain out of EU
British Prime Minister Theresa May said Friday she planned to stick to the timetable for starting Brexit negotiations in 10 days, with a new government that would lead Britain out of the EU.
“We will fulfil the promise of Brexit,” May said, speaking outside her official residence in Downing Street after meeting Queen Elizabeth II to seek permission to form a new government despite losing her majority in a snap general election.
May said on Friday she would form a new British government with backing from Northern Irish unionists after losing her Conservative majority in a snap general election.
“I have just been to see Her Majesty the Queen and I will now form a government — a government that can provide certainty and lead Britain forward at this critical time for our country,” she said after returning from Buckingham Palace to her Downing Street office in London.
