UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson to resign – UK Media

Boris Johnson is to stand down as Conservative Party leader after losing the support of his ministers and MPs according to Sources of British News outlets reports.

A Conservative leadership contest will take place this summer and a new prime minister will be in place in time for the party conference in October.

In the meantime, Mr Johnson will continue as prime minister.

He had vowed to “keep going” following a wave of resignations from the government over his leadership.

But was urged to stand down by senior members of his cabinet, including newly-appointed chancellor Nadhim Zahawi.

Boris Johnson was defiantly hanging onto power despite the resignation of at least four top ministers and a seemingly unstoppable revolt by his own lawmakers, threatening to paralyze the British government.

It follows intense pressure from party colleagues, with dozens of resignations within government from cabinet-level down.
