May’s victory is temporary: Europe reacts to Conservative Party confidence vote

After Prime Minister Theresa May won a vote of confidence in her leadership of the Conservatives, Open Europe's Anna Nadibaidze and Zoe Alipranti look at the European press reactions to events in the UK and what they mean for Brexit.

On December 12, Prime Minister Theresa May won a vote of confidence in her leadership of the Conservative Party  by 200 to 117 votes, and called for the UK Parliament to unite behind her Brexit deal, which should be put to a ‘meaningful vote’ in the House of Commons in January 2019.

In Europe, the main reaction to UK domestic events was that this victory is only a temporary success for the Prime Minister. Most papers note that the main challenge remains to make the necessary changes to the Brexit deal in order to receive a sufficient level of support from MPs in the UK.
