Theresa May to resign as UK Prime Minister.

Theresa May has announced she will step down as UK Prime Minister, after three bruising years that saw her fail to deliver Brexit, CNN reports.

May said Friday she would quit as leader of the Conservative Party on Friday June 7.

Her announcement triggers the start of a contest to replace her as Conservative leader and Prime Minister.

"Ever since I first stepped through the door behind me as prime minister I have striven to make the United Kingdom a country that works not just for the privileged few but for everyone, and to honor the result of the referendum," May says.

"I have done my best" to deliver Brexit, May says -- but she has failed to do so.

"I have tried three times."

May adds it is a matter of personal regret for her that she has failed to deliver on her flagship policy.
