Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday rejected demands from within her party to give a clear timetable for stepping down.
Naija News understands that the leader is under increasing pressure from the Members of the Parliament (MP) and activists who are unhappy over her handling of Brexit, which was meant to have taken place on March 29 but has been delayed twice.
Theresa May has rejected calls for her resignation deadline over her handling of Brexit, but She said; “not an issue about me”.
Theresa May was replying to Tory Brexiteer Andrea Jenkyns, who said she had “failed to deliver on her promises.” and had lost public trust.
In her response to Jenkyns, May said; “This is not an issue about me and it’s not an issue about her. If it were an issue about me and the way I vote, we would already have left the EU.”
Calls have been growing for the prime minister to name an exit date.
Her spokesman insisted that May would stay back until Britain’s exit from the EU is finalised.
“She is here to deliver Brexit in phase one and then she will leave to make way for new leadership for phase two,” the spokesman said.
In March, May promised that after taking Britain out of the European Union, she would let another leader negotiate future bilateral ties with the bloc.
