LONDON, June 30. /TASS/. Britain’s Home Secretary Theresa May has announced her candidacy for Conservative party leadership and for prime minister, the 59-year-old politician wrote in The Times on Thursday.
Taking into regard that the Conservatives are in office, the party election will bring her the post of Britain’s prime minister. May wrote that her mission is "to make Britain a country that works for everyone."
The election is due to be held after current Prime Minister Davis Cameron said he would step down in the wake of the Leave vote in the June 23 referendum on Brexit.
May is viewed as a hopeful for Conservative party leadership.
