Ermmmm WTF you on about, we don't elect the PM of the UK, we only elect our local MP, the political parties elect there own leaders so she IS democratically elected
She wasn't leader of the party at the time of the last General Election and only became PM because her opponent dropped out. Therefore, she wasn't elected by the people or her party. It might seem like a minor nuance, but when it comes to making legal decisions affecting the entire future of the country, it's vital that she is legally and duly elected for the role she currently fills. All she has to do is have a Parliamentary vote on triggering Article 50, and we can all carry on as normal until the next GE.

To have someone in power by Royal prerogative making such a hefty legal decision is way too close to the throne and cannot happen in a sovereign democracy.
