Britain’s Next Prime Minister Will Be A Woman

That became clear Thursday when members of the ruling Conservative Party chose Home Secretary Theresa May and Energy Minister Andrea Leadsom as the final two candidates to succeed Prime Minister David Cameron, who announced his resignation after the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union.

The winner would become the U.K.’s first female prime minister since Margaret Thatcher, known as the “Iron Lady,” governed from 1979 to 1990.

The new leader will be chosen by 150,000 Conservative Party members on Sept. 9, after the women campaign around the country, and will also become prime minister unless a new parliamentary election is called first.
