Theresa May Biography, Date Of Birth, Early Life, Education, Family, Political Career

Born on the 1st of October, 1956, Theresa May grew up in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom and attended the St Hugh's College, Oxford.
She finished in 1977 and worked at the UK Payment's Administration and the Bank of England, and also served as a councillor for Durnsford in Merton. She made two unsuccessful attempts to be elected into the House of Commons, and was eventually elected as he MP for Maidenhead in 1997.
May held a number of roles in Shadow Cabinets from 1999 to 2010 and was also the Chairwoman of the Conservative Party from 2002 to 2003.

When the coalition government was formed after the 2010 elections, Theresa May was appointed Home Secretary and Minister for Women and Equalities but gave up the role in 2012.
She was reappointed after the Conservative success in the 2015 general elections and became the longest-serving home secretary in over 60 years. She pursued a reform of the Police Federation during her tenure, and implemented a harder line on drugs policy including the ban of the khat, the deportation of Abu Qatada, the introduction of elected Police and Crime Commissioners, the creation of the National Crime Agency and brought in additional restrictions on immigration.
To date, she is the only woman to hold two of Great Offices of State.

Theresa May was elected the Conservative Party Leader unopposed by party members in 2016 after the resignation of David Cameron, and is the second British female Prime Minister, seconding Margaret Thatcher.
It was during her tenure as a prime minister that she began the process of withdrawing the United Kingdom from the European Union, thereby triggering Article 50 in March 2017.
She announced a snap general election April with the  aims of strengthening her hand in Brexit negotiations and highlighting her "strong and stable" leadership. The outcome was a hung parliament, and the number of conservative seats fell from 330 to 317, despite the party having won its highest vote share since 1983.
The loss prompted her into entering a confidence and supply arrangement with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) to help support a minority government and since forming a second ministry on the 11th of June, 2017, Theresa has faced a significant number of ministerial resignations.

She survived a vote of no confidence from the Conservative MPs in December 2018, and another vote of no confidence from the Parliamentary in January 2019.
She has announced she wouldn't be leading her party in the 2022 general elections under the Fixed-term Parliaments Act, but didn't rule out leading it into another snap election prior to that.
May carried out the Brexit negotiations with the EU, adhering to the Chequers Agreement which also resulted in the draft Withdrawal Agreement between the United Kingdom and the European Union.
This agreement was defeated by Parliament in January 2019 in the largest majority against a British government in history and she later announced a revised deal, which was defeated in Parliament by 391 votes to 242.
May committed to stepping down as the Prime Minister if the Parliament passed her Brexit deal in order to make way for a new leader in the second face of Brexit, but it was rejected for the third time. On the 24th of May, 2019, she announced her resignation as the party leader effecting on the 7th of June, but stated that she'd be remaining in office as the Prime Minister until a successor is appointed.
