Britain's Conservative party starts voting Tuesday to replace outgoing Prime Minister David Cameron following his resignation in the wake of Britain's shock decision to leave the European Union.Interior minister Theresa May is the clear front-runner, pitching herself as a sober operator capable of unifying a party fractured by last month's referendum and of leading Britain out of the EU.The ruling party's 330 MPs will vote for one of five candidates, with the least popular being eliminated ahead of similar votes to reduce the shortlist to two.Britain's negotiations to leave the EU will form a key plank of each leadership bid, and May told MPs on Monday that the status of EU residents already in Britain was up for debate.May, who campaigned to stay in the EU, has already secured the support of 115 MPs, while Leadsom has 40 declared supporters.Results of Tuesday's ballot are expected at about 6 p.m. Further rounds of voting will be held on Thursday and the following Tuesday until two candidates remain.
