Appointment of successor to UK PM Cameron pushed back to Sept 9

The date by which Britain will appoint a successor to Prime Minister David Cameron has been moved to Sept 9, a week later than originally planned, the Conservative Party said on Tuesday.

"In order to ensure there is full participation by the membership, the Party Board recommends that the date of the declaration of the leader is the 9th September 2016."

On Monday the committee, which sets the ground rules for Conservative leadership contests, had recommended the appointment take place no later than Sept. 2. No reason was given for the change.
