New Brunswick, N.J. (May 24, 2019) – R. Daniel Kelemen, a Rutgers University–New Brunswick professor of political science and expert in E.U. politics, is available for commentary on the latest developments concerning U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May and her resignation this morning.

Kelemen said, “Theresa May made a series of incompatible promises about the sort of Brexit she would ‘deliver’ for the United Kingdom. In the end, she couldn’t deliver the impossible and it spelled the end of her premiership. But any new leader will still have to confront the painful realities of Brexit if they push ahead with it. Regardless of who is prime minister, leaving the EU will have huge economic costs and be politically destabilizing.”
