British Prime Minister Theresa May told members of Parliament on Wednesday that she would not lead the ruling Conservative Party in the next general election, reports Reuters. "I won't fight next general election," she reportedly said, telling lawmakers she recognized that many are unhappy with her leadership. She did not indicate any potential departure date. Her statement came ahead of a no-confidence vote triggered by pro-Brexit Conservatives who are concerned she is bungling Britain's divorce from the European Union, especially after she pulled her unpopular Brexit plan before a House of Commons vote on Monday. May won the confidence vote 200-117, protecting her from a leadership challenge for another year but still signaling unease with her authority.
