The newly appointed Finance minister of the UK Zahawi went to Downing Street to urge the PM to leave the post with dignity.
Minister Zahawi, Must Go Now
In the ongoing political turmoil in the United Kingdom, the newly appointed finance minister Nadhim Zahawi said that he did not say he had resigned.
In less than 48 hours since he was appointed Nadhim went to the prime minister’s office in Downing Street with all the cabinet colleagues on Wednesday evening just to tell Johnson to leave the office with dignity.
In the ongoing political crisis in England, more than 50 ministers and aides have resigned from the government of Boris Johnson.
After all these resignations Zahawi said on Twitter, “This is not sustainable and it will only get worse, for you, for the Conservative Party, and most importantly of all the country, you must do the right thing and go now.”
The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson finally resigned as leader of the Conservative Party after heavy pressure from the lawmakers of his party.
Johnson’s Political career till now has been full of ups and down not to forget too many scandals which were continuously harming his political image.
Boris Johnson will continue his role as the acting Prime Minister until the Conservatives elect a new party leader, who will then take the charge as prime minister of the United Kingdom.
Johnson while addressing the media said, “Of course, it is painful not to be able to see through so many ideas and projects, But as we have seen at Westminster”. While Johnson was speaking to the media in front of the door of No. 10 Downing Street in London, loud crowds were heard nearby.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the timetable for choosing the next Prime Minister will come out by next week. Dozens of officials, aides, and members of Johnson’s cabinet quit the government saying that it has become impossible for them to serve under the leadership of Boris Johnson.
Several of the Former Ministers including the newly appointed Finance Minister of Uk told Boris Johnson that he should resign.
Johnson Enjoyed Political Successes, All He Lacked Was Public Trust
Under his leadership, the conservative party witnessed a historic victory in the 2019 elections which led the party with a majority of 80 seats in the House of Commons.
This is known as the largest victory of any political leader since Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s victory in the year 1987.
This time Johnson was ultimately forced to resign as Prime Minister not because of any policy or any political differences, but because of perceptions, people had about his character.
Many of the Conservative lawmakers as well many of the members of the public hardly trusted him. A poll which was carried out last month by the research firm YouGov found that 3 out of 4 British citizens viewed Johnson as an untrustworthy leader.
