LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May should announce her departure date following poor local election results, former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith said on Saturday, renewing an earlier call for her to go before this month’s European elections.

Theresa May was now a “caretaker prime minister”, Duncan Smith told LBC radio.

May needed to set an immediate date for her departure, or a committee of senior Conservative members of parliament should do it for her, LBC reported him as saying.
