Britain's former Prime Minister David Cameron said on January 16 he fully supported Prime Minister Theresa May as she faces a confidence vote after her Brexit deal was rejected in parliament by a huge margin.

The confidence motion was called by opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn after lawmakers rejected May's deal by 432-202. It will be held at 1900 GMT.

Cameron also told reporters that he had no regrets over calling the June 2016 referendum, the result of which led him to resign as prime minister.

May is expected to hold on to power through the confidence vote, having secured the backing of her own party's rebels and its Northern Irish allies.
