British PM May to face vote of no confidence: parliament panel

British Prime Minister Theresa May will face a vote of no confidence in her government, the head of a Conservative Party committee in charge of organising leadership challenges said on Wednesday.

Graham Brady, chairman of the party’s so-called “1922 committee”, said the threshold for a vote had been exceeded.

The decision on May’s future as prime minister will be made later on Wednesday in the House of Commons as Britain’s planned divorce from the European Union was plunged into chaos.

A ballot will be held between 18:00-20:00 GMT on Wednesday in the House of Commons and an announcement made as soon as possible afterwards, Brady said.
