(Reuters) – Britain’s work and pensions minister Amber Rudd has ruled herself out of the Conservative Party leadership race, the Telegraph newspaper reported.
“There are all sorts of plans I would like to have when we do leave the European Union but I don’t think it is my time at the moment,” Rudd told the newspaper in an interview bit.ly/2I633TB published late on Friday.
Prime Minister Theresa May said on Friday she would quit after failing to deliver Brexit, setting up a contest that will install a new British prime minister who could pursue a cleaner break with the European Union.
