With 63% of the conservative MPs backing her and 37% voting against May saw off the leadership challenge. MPs vote in favour of May with the confidence that British Prime Minister will step down before the 2022 general elections
It was not by a thumping majority, but it was good enough for British Prime Minister Theresa May to breathe a sigh of relief. Although, there are lessons to learn marked Transport Secretary, Chris Grayling.
The opposition however pressed on stating that the vote had changed nothing and that she was unable to deliver a Brexit deal that works for a country and has lost her majority in parliament.
