Clock ticks for Prime Minister Boris Johnson

UK PM Boris Johnson 

London, UK | THE INDEPENDENT | Beleaguered British Prime Minister Boris Johnson fired Cabinet minister Michael Gove, as Downing Street fought off a rebellion within the ruling party.

Resignations on Tuesday cabinet ministers Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid left the Prime Minister struggling to keep the Conservative Party together.

Johnson, who helped the Conservative Party win a landslide election in 2019 and rode the breakaway from the EU, has become a political liability after scandals that eroded public trust.

“Frankly, the job of a prime minister in difficult circumstances when you have been handed a colossal mandate is to keep going, and that’s what I’m going to do,” he said in parliament as pressure grew.
