This Thursday, Boris Johnson, the British prime minister, will step down as leader of the Conservative Party.
After a string of crises that have cornered and alienated him inside his own party, Boris Johnson has decided to resign as leader of the Queen Elizabeth II-ruled Conservative Party. The BBC reports that he will announce his resignation in a speech to the nation on Thursday. He will leave his position as prime minister in the fall and be replaced by a new leader chosen by the Tories.
After a string of scandals that damaged his reputation and undermined his government, Boris Johnson is being forced out of office. His health and finance ministers slammed the door on Tuesday, which opened the door for a string of resignations from the administration.
