It was not immediately clear if Johnson will continue serving as prime minister until the Conservative Party selects a new leader to take his position.

Just 36 hours after Johnson nominated him to his position as Treasury chief, Nadhim Zahawi called on Johnson to resign, while another newly appointed Cabinet minister resigned minutes before the news broke.

Johnson knew that “going now” was “the correct thing to do,” according to Zahawi.

Late on Tuesday, Rishi Sunak resigned, claiming he could no longer support Johnson in light of a string of ethics scandals. Sunak was replaced by Zahawi.

At the time of this report, the person that will replace Boris Johnson after his resignation is unknown.
