David Cameron’s resignation to set off leadership scramble

Durham, ON, Canada / channel12

British Prime Minister David Cameron’s decision to resign after losing the referendum vote will set off an intense Conservative Party leadership battle.
Cameron said Friday a new prime minister should be in place by a party conference in October.
Among the likely contenders are former London Mayor Boris Johnson and Justice Secretary Michael Gove, who both helped lead the “leave” campaign.
Other Cabinet members are likely to contend as well.
Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said it is too early to speculate about who will replace Cameron.
“I think it is a bit too early to start speculating about that,” he said. “There is plenty to do now to help make this decision work, to stabilize our economy, to reassure our allies and to continue the program we were all elected on last year.”
