prime minister boris johnson has resigned Several ministers met Johnson on Wednesday evening at Prime Minister's Residence 10, Downing Street and asked him to step down. 

The most important thing was that Home Minister Priti Patel, who was considered to be her staunch supporter, was also included in these ministers. 

However, a statement issued by Downing Street said that Boris Johnson will remain in the post of Prime Minister until a new leader is elected.

Prior to this, more than 39 ministers and parliamentary secretaries of Johnson have also left his side. Johnson's ministers resigned from their posts

less than 24 hours after a rebellion by lawmakers from the ruling Conservative Party.
