"My support would [be] for the current Home Secretary Theresa May. The procedures may be shortened if we have one strong candidate. It would clearly be very good for the party and the country if we have pass times of uncertainty sooner rather than later," Lord Peter Bowness said on the sidelines of the ongoing OSCE PA annual meeting in Tbilisi.
According to the recent Sky Data Snap Poll opinion poll, May is the most preferred candidate for Tory leadership and the prime minister's office, as she potentially has 47 percent of Tory votes.
On June 23, the United Kingdom held a referendum to determine whether or not the country should leave the European Union. According to the final results, 51.9 percent of voters, or 17.4 million people, decided to support Brexit, while about 16.1 million opposed it.
