After a shocking divorce in the European Union, the United Kingdom is set to select new head of state that would lead the country towards its different economic path- now without the shadow of EU.
The Britain is now set to lead by a woman prime minister, after the Conservative Party voted to outcast male candidate out of the race to replaced David Cameron.
The race in replacing the outgoing Cameron as a leader of Conservative Party, and the country as a whole, will be fought between MPs Theresa May and Andrea Leadsom, after Michael Gove eliminated in the second round of voting by the Party members.
In the voting announced by Graham Brady, chair of Conservative Private Members’ Committee, May enjoyed the lead with 199 votes, 84 votes for Leadsom and Gove won just only 84.
With the result of the voting, it seems that the country is set to lead by its second female prime minister. Margaret Thatcher was the first, who served office from 1979 to 1990.
May was known as the UK home secretary since 2010, while the second frontrunner, Leadsom has widely known as Minister of State of Energy and the defeated man Gove has serve as Education secretary.
May told the media that she “will unite the party and said she won votes from across the party – from left to right, from leavers and remainers.”
Meanwhile, the race is on after Cameron announced his resignation following the June 23 EU referendum. The outgoing PM will set to leave the post on October.
The two tough lady candidates will compete to persuade the 150,000 members of the Conservative Party, they will both campaign for their votes over the summer.
