Theresa May announced resignation from her post recently. She was the Prime Minister of which country?

After facing intense pressure from her own party, led her to announce her resignation from her post as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and step aside as the Conservative Leader. She has been the 2nd Female Prime Minister of Britain.

The prime minister listed a series of her and her government’s achievements, including tackling the deficit, reducing unemployment and boosting funding for mental health. She will remain in charge on a caretaker basis until a successor is found. May had faced increasing pressure to resign in recent months following three unsuccessful attempts to push her Brexit deal through parliament.

Leader of the House of Commons, Andrea Leadsom, left her position, saying she no longer believed in the government's approach to exiting the European Union. The commission would prefer, an orderly withdrawal on the basis of the withdrawal agreement that has been negotiated with the United Kingdom.

Candidates for party leadership have to be nominated by two other members of Parliament, though if there is only one candidate, he or she automatically becomes the new leader. If more than two candidates emerge, lawmakers vote among themselves to narrow the field and then put two candidates to a vote by all Conservative Party members, who number approximately 120,000.
