Britain increasingly likely to get second female PM

BRITAIN looks increasingly likely to get its second female prime minister, following the first ballot to replace David Cameron in the top job.

Interior Minister Theresa May won the support of more than half the Conservative Party's MPs, gaining 165 votes.

Energy Minister Andrea Leadsom finished second on 66 and Justice Secretary Michael Gove, a key figure in the Leave campaign in Britain's referendum on European Union membership, third with 48.

Former defence minister Liam Fox is out after winning only 16 votes.

Britain's first female PM, Margaret Thatcher, served from 1979-90.
