Theresa May has been confirmed as Great Britain’s next prime minister, the Associated Press reported Wednesday.

May will lead the nation at a volatile time, only weeks after a majority of Britain’s voters chose to exit the European Union, prompting David Cameron, the previous prime minister, to resign. Since then, the country has experienced upheaval, including a three-decade drop in its currency value and uncertainty about what the future may hold.
