Mr Johnson has agreed to resign as leader of the ruling Conservative Party, according to sources at the Prime Minister’s 10 Downing Street office, the British press, and related press. Probably a successor through leadership elections in the fall.
When asked for comment, a Downing Street spokesman told ABC News Thursday that Johnson would “make a statement to the country,” but did not provide further details.
“It’s good news for the country that Boris Johnson has resigned as prime minister, but it must have happened long ago,” said Kiel Starmer, the leader of the opposition Labor Party, Thursday morning.
