Theresa May is to become the UK’s prime minister on Wednesday evening second lady after Margaret Thatcher to be at 10 Downing Street. David Cameron announced he would quit after Prime Minister’s office.

While Mr Cameron speaking outside his residence 10 Downing Street, said, he would offer his resignation to the Queen on Wednesday afternoon at Buckingham Palace.

Mrs May’s only rival to succeed Mr Cameron as Conservative leader, Andrea Leadsom, pulled out earlier on Monday which left the road clear and open for the next Lady to be the UK PM.

Mr Cameron, PM since 2010, decided to quit after the UK’s Brexit vote.
In a brief statement outside Downing Street House No#10, Mr Cameron said Mrs Leadsom had made “absolutely the right decision” to stand aside. He also added that he was “delighted” as Mrs May, the home secretary, was to succeed him as Prime Minister.

He said a “prolonged period of transition” was not necessary, and added: “So tomorrow I will chair my last cabinet meeting. On Wednesday I will attend the House of Commons for Prime Minister’s Questions.

“After that I expect to go the Palace and offer my resignation.”

Mrs May as “strong” and “competent”  candidate will provide the much needed leadership which UK needs in the coming years.

“She will have my full support,” he added.

Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher, LG, OM, PC, FRS, FRIC (née Roberts; 13 October 1925 – 8 April 2013) was a British stateswoman and politician who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990 and the Leader of the Conservative Party from 1975 to 1990. She was the longest-serving British prime minister of the 20th century, and the only woman to have held the office. A Soviet journalist dubbed her the “Iron Lady”, a nickname that became associated with her uncompromising politics and leadership style. As prime minister, she implemented policies that have come to be known as Thatcherism.

Originally a research chemist before becoming a barrister, Thatcher was elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Finchley in 1959. Edward Heath appointed her Secretary of State for Education and Science in his 1970 government. In 1975, Thatcher defeated Heath in the Conservative Party leadership election to become Leader of the Opposition and became the first woman to lead a major political party in the United Kingdom. She became prime minister after winning the 1979 general election.
