Andrea Leadsom had held the position of leader of the House since June 2017

Former Brexit Secretary David Davis called Raab "the best-placed Brexit candidate to win the necessary support among MPs and party members".

A vote by MPs on her Brexit deal - already rejected three times by MPs - has been postponed, many believe indefinitely. The party said it expects nominations to close in the week beginning June 10.

"The European Commission and the Article 50 format has set out its position and we remain available for anyone who will be the new prime minister". Each time they are asked to vote for their favoured candidate in a secret ballot.

He was one of the co-conveners of the Vote Leave campaign and his pro-Brexit stance should help his cause with the powerful Eurosceptic wing of the Conservatives. They have to agree on a way for British citizens to continue to live and work in the European Union, and vice versa.

May was the surprise victor of a Conservative leadership contest triggered when Prime Minister David Cameron stepped down after voters rejected his advice to remain in the European Union, instead voting 52%-48% to leave.
