UK Prime Minister Theresa May informed the Parliament on Tuesday that she would personally lead the UK-EU withdrawal negotiations, with newly appointed Brexit minister Dominic Raab "deputizing" for her, APA reports quoting Sputnik.

The announcement comes a fortnight after David Davis abruptly quit his role as Brexit secretary over disagreements with May on her plan for a "soft" Brexit.

"I will lead the negotiations with the European Union, with the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union deputizing on my behalf," May informed the parliament in a statement.

According to the prime minister, the Brexit ministry will continue to be responsible for the government's preparations for the pullout, including the required legislation for a deal and a no-deal scenario.
