How a new UK Conservative leader is elected

Graphic News

June 7-30, 2019 -- The United Kingdom’s Prime Minister Theresa May is to step-down as Conservative Party leader, triggering a contest that will elect a new prime minister.

The UK’s Theresa May will resign as Conservative Party leader on June 7, setting in motion a contest that will elect a new party leader and prime minister.

Her announcement, however, does not trigger a parliamentary election. Instead, the Tory party will elect the successor through several rounds of internal ballots.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
