Boris Johnson agrees to resign Thursday after political storm in London

Baku, July 7, AZERTAC

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson agreed to resign on Thursday after great pressure as more than 50 politicians have resigned from his government within the past 48 hours, according to Anadolu Agency.

Johnson will resign as the Conservative leader but it is not clear whether he will continue to serve as the prime minister until the party elects a new leader.

A statement from No 10 said: “The prime minister will make a statement to the country today (Thursday).”

Johnson had to make the decision to resign following a series of resignations on Thursday morning, despite his office last night saying Johnson is remaining "absolutely defiant" and "does not intend to resign."
