İlknur Şebnem Özxtemel-TDO-09.07.2017- British Prime Minister, Theresa May, claimed that she would remain in her office till the end of two yearlong Brexit negotiations despite of mass criticism about her failure in early parliamentary elections happened in 8th of June.
Asked during her visit to Hamburg in order to attend G20 meeting she said ‘’ Yes, we will be playing our absolutely full part and I’ll be playing my full part and the issues that we are discussing are important’’. She didn’t give any clue about whether she will quit of not but it seems May has no intend to do so.
Almost a month ago, May played a political gamble to have early elections. Tacitly, she imposed voters that she is the only one that can save Britain from hard negotiation period disturbed by many rules, laws and regulations such as article 50, compensations and re-organize post-membership trade relations with EU member 27 states. Nevertheless, she lost the majority that David Cameron and got 20 points below in the poll.
British Secretary of State, Boris Johnson, argued that the Prime Minister’s political prospects became ‘’very difficult’’ after the unhappy results. He said May turned her situation.
A recently released poll by You Gove indicates that Labour Party leading by anti-EU politician, Jeremy Corby would win with a surplus of eight points, if there would be another election.
Regardless of the debates about May’s future in the office, British PM will have bilateral meetings with US President Donald Trump, Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
