According to Reuters and The Associated Press, the Conservative Party leader was expected to announce his resignation Thursday after several scandals, including criticism about how he handled sexual misconduct allegations against a senior official, prompted members of his Cabinet to call for him to quit. At least 40 ministers have stepped down from Johnson’s government, the AP reported.

In a statement Thursday morning, Johnson’s office said the 58-year-old, who became prime minister in 2019, “will make a statement to the country today,” according to Reuters.
