Rücktritte in britischer Regierung
Der britische Prmierminister Boris Johnson bemüht sich an der Macht zu bleiben, während Minister und Mitarbeiter seine Regierung aus Protest über seine Führung verlassen.
In less than 24 hours, Prime Minister Johnson has seen twentyone resignations, including two Cabinet members, Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid, who quit as finance minister and health secretary, respectively.
The departures started late Tuesday afternoon (July 5, 2022), with Javid quitting just after 6 o’clock (17:00 GMT). Sunak’s resignation letter followed just nine minutes later.
The trigger for the resignations was the revelation that Johnson knew Chris Pincher, who resigned as deputy chief whip amid sexual harassment allegations, had been investigated for his unacceptable behaviour but promoted him anyway.
