On Wednesday, British Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was due to say that he would have to step down as prime minister, following his resignation from the government.

The BBC, Sky News and other outlets reported without quoting sources that a parliamentary committee was waiting for a delegation to return from a two-hour grilling to announce that their time was up.

The 58-year-old leader’s grip on power has slipped since Tuesday night when Rishi Sunak resigned as finance minister and Sajid Javid as health secretary.

The two said they could no longer tolerate Johnson’s culture of dog scams for months, including violations of the lockdown law in Downing Street.

But he promised to continue working in the parliamentary committee and in the previous question and answer session with the MPs in Parliament.

Asked about the cabinet delegation, he told the committee, “I will not comment on political developments.

“We are going to contact the government of the country.”

He added: “We need a stable government, loving each other as conservatives, moving forward with our priorities, that’s what we need to do.”

Earlier, Javid urged other ministers to resign, saying “the problem starts at the top and I believe it will not change.”

“And that means that those of us in that position – who have a responsibility – have to make that change.”

“Bye, Boris” shouts echoed around the chamber at the end of his speech. Most of the Tories were clearly quiet when Johnson attacked the Labor opposition over the PM’s questions. Some shook their heads.

‘Gone’

Sunak and Javid resigned minutes after Johnson apologized for appointing a senior Conservative, who resigned last week after being accused of sexually assaulting two men.

Former education secretary Nadeem Jahavi was immediately given a finance brief and confessed to the next difficult task.

“You don’t go to this job to live an easy life,” Zhaovi told Sky News.

The day came for Deputy Chief Whip Chris Pincher to resign.

Downing Street first denied that Johnson was aware of previous allegations against Pincher when he was hired in February.

But as of Tuesday, the defense had collapsed after a former top civil servant told Johnson about the second incident involving his allies in 2019 as Secretary of State.

Queens, the minister for children and families, will resign early Wednesday, saying he was misinformed before defending the government in media interviews on Monday.

Tory MP Andrew Briggson, one of Johnson’s harshest critics, said the Pincher case had reached a climax for many and that Johnson was in the process of being released later this month.

Other senior cabinet ministers, including Secretary of State Liz Truss and Secretary of Defense Ben Wallace, still openly support Johnson.

But with the pile of resignations, many wondered how long it would last.

A Snape Savanta Commerce poll on Wednesday indicated that three out of five Conservative voters say Johnson cannot regain public confidence, while 72 percent of all voters think he should resign.

‘Local issues’

Johnson briefly avoided a no-confidence vote among Conservative MPs a month ago, meaning he cannot be challenged again for another year.

But the influential “1922 committee” of non-ministerial Tory MPs is trying to change the rules by holding a subsequent executive committee meeting on Wednesday.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, a loyal cabinet aide and Johnson’s “minister for Brexit opportunities,” dismissed the resignation as a “minor local problem.”

But it is disappointing news for Johnson, especially in the UK, that Sunk’s departure in the midst of policy differences over the cost-of-living crisis.

The prime minister, who received a police fine for the so-called “partygate” case, will have to face a parliamentary inquiry into whether he lied to MPs about the revelations.

In recent months, the Tories have marked another allegation of sexual misconduct, recalling the “slash” that John Major’s government rendered ineffective in the 1990s – allegations of party discipline and standards enforcement – as Pincher walked out of the whips office.

Conservative MP Neil Parish resigned in April after being caught watching pornography on his mobile phone in the House of Commons.

This led to a by-election to his former safe seat, which the party lost in a historic victory for the opposition Liberal Democrats.

The same day, Labor defeated the Conservatives in a second by-election in northern England, with its Tory MP convicted of sexual harassment.
