British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson is expected to resign later on Thursday as the leader of the Conservative Party.
Despite his resignation as party leader, he will continue as Prime Minister until the autumn.
This marks the third day of the resignation spree that is currently bedeviling the party as over 50 members of the party have already tendered their resignation from the party.
A Conservative leadership race will take place this summer and a new Prime Minister will be in place in time for the Tory party conference in October.
There are speculations that Sajid Javid or Rishi Sunak will be next in line for the prime minister’s office.
According to Sky News, a spokesman for Number 10 said: “The prime minister will make a statement to the country today.”
On Wednesday, the Prime Minister was on the brink following the party gates scandal and his recent appointment of Christopher Pincher as chief Whip despite his knowledge of his misconduct.
The 58-year-old leader’s grip on power became more slippery on Tuesday night when Rishi Sunak resigned as finance minister and Sajid Javid quit as health secretary within 10 minutes.
Both parties expressed their intolerance of the scandals that has cropped from the prime minister for months.
The agitations include lockdown lawbreaking in Downing Street that enraged the public who followed the rules.
Boris Johnson also faced an hours-long grilling from the chairs of the House of Commons’ most powerful committees, who include some of his most virulent critics in the Tory ranks.
The exits of Sunak and Javid came just minutes after Johnson apologised for appointing a senior Conservative, who quit his post last week after he was accused of drunkenly groping two men.
