British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday officially resigned from his office.

The Prime Minister announced his resignation today afternoon at 10, Downing Street, London.

He said he will, however, remain in office until the Conservative Party elects a new leader who will also assume office as Prime Minister. That is expected to happen before October.

Mr. Johnson in his speech today, thanked the Conservative Party and the British voters for trusting the party and helping it to victory in the 2019 elections.

“I want you to know how sad I am giving up the best job in the world,” Mr Johnson said Thursday.

He added that in politics, no one is indispensable. From now on until the new prime minister is in place, the interest of the British people will continue to be served, he said.

Mr Johnson pledged to support the new leader who emerges. The timetable for choosing a new leader will be released next week.
