Boris Johnson has resigned as leader of the conservative party in the United Kingdom, saying “no one is indispensable” following mass resignations by senior and junior officials in his party, according to a Guardian report.
Johnson has said that he was also told by his party that he had lost their support following a myriad of scandals that has been plaguing his administration.
He plans to stay on as Prime Minister until a suitable replacement can be found. Johnson’s resignation seems to have finally ended the unusual standoff within the Conservative Party with several members having called for his resignation for months.
Johnson last month (June 6th), barely won a no confidence vote in the UK parliament that saw 41.2% of the conservative members of parliament voting against its then leader.
