UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson Has Resigned

 Appearing in front of the Prime Minister's permanent residence at No. 10 Downing Street, Boris Johnson announced that he will step down from the leadership of the ruling party.


With Mr. Johnson stepping down as the leader of the British Conservative Party, the party must choose a new leader who will eventually become the next British Prime Minister.


Boris Johnson said it was now clear the Conservative Party's will was to have a new leader and therefore a new prime minister.


Mr.Johnson said he would continue in his duties as party leader and prime minister until new leadership is in place.


He also said that the process of electing a new leader of the conservative party will begin and the schedule will be announced next week.


In a part of his speech, defending his performance, he said that he was very proud of his achievements and mentioned things such as Brexit, Britain's passing through the Covid-19 pandemic, and leading the West against Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine. named.


It was previously announced that Mr. Johnson will continue working as Prime Minister until this fall and until the new leader of the Conservative Party is elected, but the pressure and demands for his immediate resignation from the Prime Ministership have increased.


Mr. Johnson's resignation follows a series of government resignations.


The Tory leadership contest will take place this summer, and a new prime minister will be in office in time for the Tory conference in October.


So far, nearly fifty members of the British Parliament have resigned from their positions in protest of Mr. Johnson's continued prime ministership.


Nusrat Ghani, the vice-chairman of the 1922 committee of the conservative party, has suggested that Mr. Johnson should immediately step down from the position of prime minister and Dominic Raab should replace him as the interim prime minister.


A source close to the British Prime Minister's office said that Boris Johnson will replace the resigned cabinet members with new ministers today, despite growing calls for Mr. Johnson to step down as prime minister as he resigns as the leader of the Conservative Party.


In recent months, Boris Johnson has been accused of disregarding moral standards and lack of honesty necessary to continue in power due to reports indicating that he violated the quarantine regulations at the Prime Minister's residence during the outbreak of the Coronavirus, as well as not paying attention to accusations against one of the party's disciplinary supervisors in the House of Commons.


The political crisis over Mr. Johnson's leadership intensified with the resignation of the finance and health ministers (Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid) on Tuesday.


These two important cabinet ministers said that they have lost their trust in the prime minister.


On Wednesday afternoon, a group of cabinet ministers met with Boris Johnson at his official residence at 10 Downing Street and reportedly asked him to step down.


At the time, it was reported that Mr. Johnson did not accept the request.


Hours later, it was announced that Michael Gove, a close ally of Mr. Johnson during Britain's exit from the European Union, had been removed from his cabinet position by the prime minister.


The decision was taken after Mr. Gove told the Prime Minister that his time in office was up.


Mr. Johnson has said that in the previous general election in 2019, he led the Conservative Party to a landslide victory and that voters had given him a mission to carry out.


He emphasizes that currently, due to the difficult economic conditions and international issues, especially the war in Ukraine, it is necessary to implement the plans he developed to improve the situation.


According to him, if he resigns as prime minister and leader of the conservative party, his successor will not be able to lead this party to a similar victory.
