UK prime minister Theresa May has announced that she was going to cancel a trip to the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos next week, due to the complications caused in her country by Brexit, Bloomberg reports.

May is the third important world leader to drop out of the Davos conference. US president Donald Trump has cancelled his trip due to the ongoing government shutdown, while French president Emmanuel Macron said he would not attend after weeks of protests in his country.

The conference provides a chance for world leaders to present their policies before the world’s biggest businesses and investors. However, the three leaders would risk to further irritate their voters if they spend time in the Alps surrounded by the global elite.

Some are still going to make the trip, including German chancellor Angela Merkel, Japanese PM Shinzo Abe, Italian PM Giuseppe Conte and new Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro.
