British Prime Minister Theresa May is expected on Friday to announce the date of her departure، triggering a contest that will bring a new leader to power who is likely to push for a more decisive Brexit divorce deal، Reuters reported.
After a crisis-riven premiership of almost three years، May is due to meet the chairman of the powerful Conservative 1922 Committee، which can make or break prime ministers، to set out a timetable for her departure.
Ministers expect May to make a statement by mid-morning.
"The 1922 Committee are coming in with a revolver and basically pointing it at her head،" said Gus O'Donnell، Britain's top civil servant from 2005 to 2011. "He (Brady) will leave the room and possibly leave the revolver in there."
