Former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson Resigns After Being Sanctioned for Deceiving Parliament

Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced his resignation from the legislature on Friday after learning he would face punishment for deceiving Parliament.

Johnson resigned after learning the findings of a legislative probe into false claims he made to Parliament regarding a number of events at government facilities in 2020 and 2021 that violated pandemic lockdown regulations.

Johnson received one of the 126 fines that the police ultimately handed out over the late-night gatherings, drunken parties, and “wine time Fridays,” and the scandal hastened the end of his premiership.

He claimed in a statement that his opponents were attempting to force him out.

After leading the Conservatives to a resounding win in 2019, Johnson, whose career has been a roller coaster of scandals and comebacks, was ousted by his own party less than three years later. Despite several scandals, Johnson resigned as prime minister in 2022 but continued to serve in the legislature.
