UK Prime Minister Agrees to Resign
U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has agreed to resign, ending an unprecedented political crisis over his future that has paralyzed Britain’s government.
An official in Johnson’s Downing Street office confirmed the prime minister will announce his resignation later this Thursday.
Johnson had initially rebuffed calls by his Cabinet to step down in the wake of ethics scandals.
However, he eventually gave in after more than 40 ministers quit his government and told him to resign.
