London: UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday he will resign if he realizes that the British government cannot continue its work.
The statement came after half-a-dozen Ministers quit Johnson’s government over the past two days due to a recent scandal concerning the appointment of Christopher Pincher as the deputy chief whip, reports Sputnik.
“Clearly, if there were circumstances in which I felt it was impossible for the government to go on and discharge the mandate we have been given… then I would (resign),” Johnson said in a speech in Parliament. He was asked to list circumstances under which he would resign.
According to the British Prime Minister, he will also make such a decision if the UK is frustrated in its own desire to support the Ukrainian people.
“The job of a Prime Minister in difficult circumstances, when he has been handed a colossal mandate, is to keep going and that is what I am going to do,” Johnson added.
