In a series of development coming up from the United Kingdom (UK), Boris Johnson Thursday stepped down as the United Kingdom. The resignation has come from the former Prime Minister after following days of defections, the Conservative Party-led administration found itself in a deepening political crisis. He announced his resignation amid a flurry of resignations from his senior staff in protest of his leadership, although he will remain Prime Minister until a replacement is selected.
In his address to the country, Johnson stated that he will continue as Prime Minister until a new leader is nominated and that he is quite pleased with his accomplishments. While announcing his decision, he said it is clearly the will of the parliamentary party that there should be a new leader and a new PM. The timetable for the contest will be announced next week. “I have appointed a cabinet to serve until the new leader is elected,” he added.
As per the reports coming from the United Kingdom, the leadership election will take place during the summer, and the candidate will replace Johnson at the party’s annual conference in early October.
