British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said it is his Conservative Party’s “clearly wish” that there should be a new leader as he announced his resignation.

Johnson said on Thursday he would remain as British prime minister while a leadership contest is held to choose his successor.

Critics say he should not be allowed to remain as caretaker prime minister and should be removed from office as soon as possible.

The announcement follows the latest ethics scandal surrounding his leadership, which has led to some 50 senior lawmakers leaving the government.

Johnson had in recent days turned down calls by his cabinet to step down in the wake of ethics scandals. But he conceded defeat after more than 40 ministers were asked to leave and leave the government.

British Treasury chief Nadim Zahvi called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to resign on Thursday, just 36 hours after Johnson was hired, while another newly appointed cabinet minister stepped down. Zahvi said Johnson knew “going now” was the right thing to do. Zahvi was appointed late Tuesday to replace Rishi Sunak, who resigned saying he could not support Johnson after a series of ethics scandals.

Johnson made a name for himself as a populist who pledged to “meet Brexit” and help his Conservative party to a landslide victory in the 2019 elections.

Kenneth Branagh is portraying Johnson in his efforts to battle the coronavirus pandemic, Brexit and also controversy in his personal and professional life in the Sky drama this englandWhich is set to air in the fall.

7th July at 5am Updated to include Johnson’s resignation.
