Boris Johnson announces his resignation, pending the ‘tories’ choose a new leader

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, has assumed this Thursday that “clearly” his own colleagues believe that “the Conservative Party should have a new leader” and, therefore, the country “a new prime minister”, in the announcement of a resignation that remains at the expense of the calendar to elect his successor, which will be announced next week.

“No one is indispensable in politics,” said Johnson, in a speech at the gate of Downing Street in which he justified that, if he has clung to office for weeks, it is because he understood that it was his “obligation” and that in this form responded to the mandate obtained at the polls at the end of 2019.

In this sense, he explained that for weeks he has striven to defend that it was a “mistake” to change the government in a period marked by economic uncertainty and the war in Ukraine, among other challenges of a time that he has classified as “complicated”.
