UK’s Theresa May Faces Pressure to Step Down as PM to Save Brexit

British Prime Minister Theresa May is facing increased pressure from her own Conservative Party to either resign or to set a date for stepping down in order to build support for her Brexit plan.

British media reported on Sunday, 24 March that senior party figures were urging May to “recognize her weakened political position” and resign.

There is no indication from Downing Street that a resignation is near.

May has thus far been unable to win more support for her European Union withdrawal plan, which lawmakers defeated twice already.

She has raised the possibility of bringing the plan back to Parliament a third time if there is enough support for it to pass.

Britain is set to leave the EU on 12 April unless a deal is approved or other arrangements made.
