British PM Theresa May survives no-confidence vote

(CNN)UK Prime Minister Theresa May survived a vote of no-confidence triggered by members of her own party over her handling of Britain’s departure from the European Union, but her margin of victory was significantly narrower than her supporters expected.

May won by 200 votes to 117, meaning that a third of her parliamentary party failed to back her. The size of the rebellion underscored the daunting task faced by the Prime Minister if she is to secure approval in a divided House of Commons for her imperiled Brexit deal.
Outside Downing Street, May admitted that it had been a “long and challenging day.”
