LONDON — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will resign.
He will stay on as prime minister until the fall when the transfer process to the next leader is completed. The decision comes after days of facing mounting pressure to step down.
Johnson had said just yesterday before parliament that he had no plans to step down.
Johnson admitted to knowing about sexual misconduct allegations against Conservative member of parliament Chris Pincher after saying he was “not aware” of them.
Earlier today, at least five more members of the government resigned after a wave of resignations came on Wednesday. Just last month, he survived a confidence vote.
However, nearly 150 members of parliament voted against him at the time.
