The United Kingdom Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has finally resigned from his position.
His resignation will pave the way for a successor to replace him as British prime minister after dozens of his ministers quit his scandal-hit government.
Following his resignation, British Foreign Secretary, Liz Truss, called for “calmness and unity” Thursday after Johnston quit as Conservative Party leader following a series of scandals and an exodus of cabinet ministers.
“The PM has made the right decision. The Government under Boris’s leadership had many achievements — delivering Brexit, vaccines and backing Ukraine.
