May 22, 2017 - Following the Manchester explosion, May announces that election campaigning will be suspended until further notice.

June 8, 2017 - In a competitive general election, May's Conservative Party loses its majority in the UK parliament, coming up eight seats short. The Labour Party, led by opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, picks up 32 seats for a total of 262 seats.

June 9, 2017 - May visits Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace, an early step in the process of forming a new coalition government. May's proposed new government will be a partnership between the Conservative Party and the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland. The next day, two of May's top advisers resign, even as May herself rebuffs calls to step down.

December 6, 2017 - Prosecutors describe a plot to assassinate May involving an explosive device at the gates of Downing Street that would give the attacker access to No. 10, May's residence as Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman appears in court on charges of terrorism offenses in the alleged plot.

July 6, 2018 - At the end of a cabinet meeting on Brexit, May announces a proposal that aims to preserve free trade with the European Union. In return for free access to its biggest export market, the UK would commit to following EU rules and regulations on goods and accept a limited role for its highest court. Two cabinet members - Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson - resign days later in protest to the plan.

July 17, 2018 - May survives a crucial vote in parliament when MPs vote 307 to 301 against a proposal by Remain-supporting members of her Conservative party that would have significantly undermined her Brexit strategy.

December 12, 2018 - Survives a vote of no-confidence among Tory members of parliament, garnering 200 votes of the 317 total. The vote was called after May postponed a parliamentary decision on a Brexit deal amid signs it would not be approved.
