Boris Johnson Resigns As Leader Of UK's Ruling Party

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has resigned as leader of the Conservative party.

Johnson signalled his intention to quit as Prime Minister, saying the process of selecting a new party leader will begin next week, with a new Prime Minister expected to be in place by the Autumn.

In a statement outside Downing Street this Thursday, Johnson blamed the “herd instinct” of Tory MPs for pushing him out of office, after a series of cabinet ministers told him he had lost the support of the party.

Johnson’s resignation comes following dozens of resignations from his government, including former chancellor Rishi Sunak.

Sunak’s replacement, Nadhim Zahawi, also called for Johnson to go.

Sunak, Ben Wallace, Liz Truss, Sajid Javid, Penny Mordaunt, Jeremy Hunt, Tom Tugendhat, and Suella Braverman are likely to be among those who will stand to become the Prime Minister.

Johnson’s exit follows three years of scandals, including anger over his handling of harassment allegations against Chris Pincher, the deputy chief whip; a police fine over lockdown parties in Downing Street, attempts to change the standards system, and accusations of breaking international law.

He became prime minister in 2019, taking over from Theresa May with a promise to “get Brexit done”.

Johnson won an 80-seat majority in a general election in December 2019 and took the UK out of the EU.

Boris didnt resign because the people wanted him out.
Its his MPs who lost confidence in his leadership style.
Why was he sending arms to Ukraine?

Well done Boris Johnson. Mr Boris Johnson is a true gentleman who has placed the will of the majority above his personal pride. He admits his mistakes & apologises whenever called out to do so by the members of the House of Commons. This is true democracy at work. Africa should emulate this. Unlike here in Africa where one individual can continuously mess up a country for decades without any repercussions on himself. In the West, institutions are bigger than individuals. Principles are prioritised over principals. Unlike here in Africa where institutions are weakened & captured & principles are violated with impunity.
