英 총리 경선, 여성 후보 맞대결
With David Cameron on his way out of ten Downing Street,… we now know that Britain’s next prime minister will be a woman.
In the second ballot of the Conservative Party’s leadership race, Therasa May and Andrea Leadsom have emerged as the top two candidates.
Park Jong-hong reports.
It’s now official … Britain will be ushering in a female prime minister who will lead the country out of the European Union.
The remaining candidates are interior minister Theresa May and energy minister Andrea Leadsom who came out on top in the wake of the second ballot of Conservative Party lawmakers.
In party primaries on Thursday, May won 199 votes to Leadsom’s 84.
Justice Secretary Michael Gove garnered a mere 46 votes and was eliminated from the race.
Gove, along with former London Mayor Boris Johnson, had been one of the key campaigners for Britain leaving the EU.
Theresa May is considered a Euroskeptic although she supported the UK remaining in the EU during the campaign.
But soon after the referendum, May made it unequivocally clear that there would be no turning back.
Andrea Leadsom has been a leave campaigner from the start,… pitching huge opportunities for Britain after its divorce from the EU.
Whoever wins the contest,… the outcome means Britain will have its second female prime minister in 26 years after the late Margaret Thatcher,… who was in office from 1979 to 1990.
The next step in choosing Britain’s new prime minister involves 150-thousand grassroots Conservative Party members nationwide casting their ballots.
The result will be announced by September 9th.
