UK prime minister Boris Johnson Resign

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has decided to step down, according to his office, putting an end to the nation's government's paralysis caused by an unprecedented political crisis over his future.

An official in Johnson's Downing Street office confirms the prime minister will announce his resignation later. 

It was not immediately clear whether Johnson would stay in office while the Conservative Party chooses a new leader. 

Treasury chief Nadhim Zahawi called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to resign just 36 hours after becoming PM. 

Education Secretary Michelle Donelan announced her resignation Thursday morning. Conservative MP Sajid Javid said Johnson's actions threaten the integrity of the Conservative Party and the UK government.

Labour leader Ian Blackford says Johnson "no longer has the moral authority to lead". 

It is rare for a prime minister to cling on to office in the face of this much pressure from his Cabinet colleagues.  

That triggered a series of reports about past allegations leveled against Pincher - and shifting explanations from the government about what Johnson knew when he tapped him for a senior job enforcing party discipline.
