I hope you're not British Reb77Br as that would be embarrassing... even Phos knows that UK PM's are not 'elected'.

In fact in the last 100 years, around half of all prime ministers came into office without having won a general election.

That, by the way, includes Winston Churchill.
But....May became PM by default when Andrea Leadsom dropped out, so technically, she wasn't even elected by the Conservative party.
