David Cameron chairs last cabinet meeting as PM
David Cameron chaired his last cabinet meeting as Britain's prime minister Tuesday, a day before he will leave the role.
Cameron had announced he would step down by October after Britain voted to leave the European Union last month, but that process was unexpectedly accelerated when Andrea Leadsom, one of the two candidates shortlisted to replace him, suddenly pulled out of the leadership race on Monday.
The sole remaining candidate, Home Secretary Theresa May, was elected the leader of the ruling Conservative Party “with immediate effect” Monday and will become the country’s next prime minister on Wednesday. She will be the second woman to hold the role after Margaret Thatcher, who governed between 1979 and 1990.
