Due to ill health
Or, a general election.
BBC assistant political editor Norman Smith says broadcasters usually know what is about to be announced, but on this occasion they do not.

Queen brown bread imo
War with Gibraltar.
We've got Whitts to agree to a new contract I reckon.
May has type 2 diabetes so it COULD be ill health , she COULD be talking about backing Trump over North Korea
or she COULD be about to try and trigger a snap election. However she would need two thirds of MP's to agree to
the third one.
The Tories would stuff Labour so badly it could take them 20 years to recover from it.
Election on June 8 it seems.
It must be fairly easy to make dosh on the currency markets given the pound has just plummeted because of a mysterious statement.
Buy now, sell later.
Is it that simple?.
So when she said she would not call for a General Election she was lying. This will require two thirds of Parliament to approve this given that we are supposed to have a fixed five year Parliament these days. Labour need to block it.
June 8th General Election, May has said.
She's taking the Arsenal job.
Theresa May, though, is losing any credibility. She lets the wind of opinion make her decisions for her, and the Tories nearly ripped up a manifesto pledge for not raising VAT just last month!
Other famous Theresa Maybe u-turns
No General Election before 2020
Must Remain in EU.
Sadly, there are no opposition parties.
Brexit will, obviously, be the main issue (but remember, she has said that there will be open borders for 7 years so a few right wingers will hate that) but take a look at the small print.
The Tories are hell bent on removing personal liberties in the guise of protecting our borders. The Tories are wining and dining with sinister leaders worldwide (Turkey, Saudi Arabia, The Philippines) in the hopes of getting crumbs to replace the loaves of bread we were scoffing before.
My vote, at present, is for the Liberal Democrats but, in a safe Labour seat, it's not going to make any difference. It could very well be the nastiest, but most boring, election for a generation.
Plus, the Tories will not win in 2022 especially because Corbyn will be unable to lead the party on June 9th.

It's safe to say Jeremy Corbyn will resign as Labour Leader on June 9th.
Surely under the circumstances it was inevitable. Unfortunately I can see nothing other than a Tory landslide. Corbyn simply has no leadership qualities whatsoever. Lib Dems to pick up a few disenfranchised Labour voters. Ukip to take a hiding.
A guy on 5 live is saying that she will get her mandate then over turn the referendum.
Are you on crack?.
It's definitely safe to say there'll be 5 years of more snoopers charters and erosion of personal liberties though. 350 plus Tory MPs faced with little opposition will be a nightmare scenario for the sick, elderly, unemployed and, indeed, employed.
I hope The Colonel's Welsh Independence Party can count on everybody's vote?
I doubt there's any enthusiasm from voters who are already suffering from election fatigue. Labour will be relieved if they only lose 30 seats.
I've got a feeling that people are already bored of the contest and the only thing that could make it interesting is a low turnout.
The worst scenario here is a hung parliament leading us into brexit
Potential for a rainbow coalition making Brexit even more difficult.
This could be quite big for Plaid, especially with it being called now meaning that Wales has 40 seats, not the 29 Wales would have in 2020, Murdoch's anti-Labour machine will be in full flow and this could benefit Plaid
Unless the Colonel's Welsh Independence Party gets going, that is
