UK Chancellor of the Exchequer and Health Secretary resign, citing PM Johnson’s leadership

British Health Secretary Sajid Javid resigned on Tuesday, throwing Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government into crisis.

Javid said he had lost confidence in Johnson’s ability to govern in the national interest after a series of scandals, saying he “can no longer carry on in good conscience”.

He said many lawmakers and the public had lost confidence in Johnson’s ability to govern in the national interest.

“I regret to say, however, that it is clear to me that this situation will not change under your leadership – and therefore you have lost my trust,” Javid said in a letter to Johnson.

Finance Minister Rishi Sunak also resigned on Tuesday.
