Sky News reports that Boris Johnson may resign as prime minister today.
Boris Johnson has come under heavy pressure to quit after more than 50 resignations from all levels of government in the previous few days.
Johnson agreed to resign after consulting with Sir Graham Brady, the head of the Conservative 1922 Committee, according to a source at No. 10.
Shortly after Michelle Donelan, Boris Johnson’s newly appointed education secretary, announced her resignation, the confirmation was announced.
After Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis resigned from his position, Ben Wallace, the defense secretary, earlier withdrew his support for Boris.
