LONDON — Shortly after Queen Elizabeth accepted David Cameron`s resignation, Theresa May became British Prime Minister on Wednesday after being appointed by the queen.
Queen Elizabeth II invited Conservative Party leader to form a government during a brief meeting at Buckingham Palace in London, less than an hour after Cameron tendered his resignation to the head of state.
Theresa May, the former home secretary, is the UK’s second female Prime Minister and comes to power at one of the most turbulent times in the country’s recent history.
The 59-year-old is known for wanting to ‘get on with it’ and within minutes of taking office, she put her mark on the Government, making it clear to George Osborne that his services as Chancellor were no longer required.
When she moved into Number 10 she said: “We will make Britain a country that works not for a privileged few but for every one of us.”
“That will be the mission of the Government I lead and together we will build a better Britain.”
EU leaders have said they expect May to move quickly, and French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Italy`s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi announced they will hold a summit in August on the vote.
