David Cameron recently announced that he would resign from the post of Prime Minister of the UK following the Brexit vote. However, he did add that he would keep his position until October when a new leader would be chosen.
Now that the UK has voted for its exit from the European Union (EU), David Cameron has announced his resignation.
“I held nothing back, I was absolutely clear about my belief that Britain is stronger, safer and better off inside the European Union and I made clear the referendum was about this and this alone — not the future of any single politician including myself,” said David Cameron in a statement reported by CNN.
“But the British people have made a very clear decision to take a different path and as such I think the country requires fresh leadership to take it in this direction.
“I will do everything I can as prime minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months but I do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination.
“This is not a decision I’ve taken lightly but I do believe it’s in the national interest to have a period of stability and then the new leadership required.”
