LONDON — Britain's new prime minister should take up his position on the afternoon of July 24, a spokesman for Theresa May said on Tuesday, fleshing out a succession triggered by her resignation after failing to get her Brexit deal approved by parliament.
The party said a postal ballot of the 160,000 or so Conservative Party members to decide who will replace May as leader would close on July 22 with the winner announced the following day.
