Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, resigned on Thursday, July 7, after less than three years in office.

His resignation brings an end to an unprecedented political crisis over his future, which had paralyzed the British government.

In a speech delivered at Downing Street, he said, “no one in politics is remotely indispensable”.

“I feel sad to be giving up the best job in the world. I fought so hard in the last few days to continue because I felt it was my job, my duty and my obligation to continue as PM.”

Boris Johnson also stated that the new leader will be named next week. Remember that Johnson has been embroiled in a series of scandals that have forced even his most ardent supporters to abandon him.

Since Tuesday, more than 50 lawmakers have resigned from the government, outraged at Boris Johnson’s former deputy chief whip, Chris Pincher, who was accused of graping two men last week.

Despite an unprecedented flight of middle-ranking ministers from the government, a battering at Prime Minister’s Questions, and a bruising appearance before a committee of senior lawmakers in Parliament, Boris Johnson initially attempted to ride out the crisis.

He insisted on Wednesday that he would not resign.

Keir Starmer, the leader of the opposition Labour Party, said Johnson’s decision to resign was “good news for the country,” adding that it “should have happened long ago.” “He was never fit for office.” “He has been responsible for massive lies, scandal, and fraud,” said Starmer on Twitter.
