British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has resigned as Prime Minister and leader of the conservative Party.

Boris Johnson announced his resignation on Thursday at No.10 Downing Street. He thanked the conservative party and the British people for voting them to victory in 2019.

For the past two days, Boris Johnson has witnessed mass resignations from members of his cabinet and some members of parliament after losing their support.

Relationships have also strained between Johnson and some of his allies as a result of his handling of government affairs. His administration has been marred by a series of scandals, the most recent of which was the handling of the case of Deputy Chief Whip Chris Pincher, who was accused of sexual misconduct.

According to reports, Johnson had vowed earlier to stay in office following the mass resignations of his cabinet, but later conceded defeat and stated his willingness to resign as Prime Minister.

However, it is yet to be decided if Boris Johnson will continue as interim Prime Minister until October, when a new Prime Minister will be installed in time for the annual Conservative conference.

Johnson was elected Prime Minister of the United Kingdom by a landslide in 2019. Unfortunately, his administration has been plagued by various types of scandals since assuming office.
