Thursday July 7, 2022
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has finally resigned under heavy pressure from lawmakers in his own party. His resignation caps a remarkable political career filled with highs, lows and almost too many scandals to count.
He said he will stay in office until the Conservative Party chooses a new leader, who will then take over as prime minister, Kyiv Independent learnt.
Johnson made the announcement standing outside 10 Downing St., the official residence of the British prime minister, where he defended his achievements and assured the British public that the work of the government will carry on during the handover process.
The announcement comes after dozens of officials quit his government, saying they could no longer serve under his leadership.
