The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom has resigned after not having reached an agreement for the Brexit

Theresa May resigns her position

Through tears, Theresa May has announced that she will resign after the crisis of the last year of the Brexit. Since 2016, after the popular referendum and since May became prime minister, the exit of the European Union was one of its main projects.

" I feel as certain today as I did 3 years ago, that in a democracy if you give people a choice is your duty to implement what they decide. I have done my best to do that. I negotiated the terms of our exit and a new relationship with our neighbors that protects jobs, our security, and our union (...) It is now clear to me that it is on the best interest of the country for a new Prime Minister to lead that effort", were some of May's words in her public announcement.

The leader of the British Conservative Party affirmed that from the next week the efforts will be arranged in choosing the best option to occupy the position. Meanwhile, she will remain in office to support Her Majesty in whatever she needs until the decision is made.

Although at first it was the same population that voted to approve the Brexit, May did not find it easy to fight in parliament to achieve it. For months, the date was postponed after reaching no agreement. The discussion was between leaving with or without agreement of the European Union, or, in the last case, not leaving. All this was so that the United Kingdom could leave the European Union on good terms with it and the economic and political relations would benefit both parties. While Theresa May tried to make the exit with an agreement, trying that this was achieved before the parliamentary elections of the EU (which will be on Sunday May 26), the opposition asked for her resignation.

While one might think that Brexit's political drama has come to an end, this resignation unleashes even more uncertainty about what will happen. According to experts, this would mean more possibilities for the Brexit to be carried out without an agreement, which would bring the worst possible consequences. El Clarín published the words of Sarah Carlson, an analyst at Moody's: "the resignation of the Prime Minister also increases the risk of a Brexit without an agreement, which would have significant negative effects on the sovereign note of the United Kingdom and a number of other issuers".

The same means, in the words of analyst Ranko Berich of Monex Europe, ensures that it is possible that as a result of this resignation, the political debate will focus on a battle for succession, "so it is probably mandatory for those who aspire to replace it, demonstrate the will to complete an exit without agreement".

On the other hand, the detractors of May, who repeatedly requested her resignation and those who have fought the most because the Brexit was not carried out, did not delay in expressing themselves about it. Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labor Party posted on Twitter that May had done the right thing by resigning, because "she cannot govern. Neither her nor her divided and disintegrated party. "
