Brexit-backing Attorney General calls on Boris to go and throws hat into leadership contest
Matt Hancock, a former health secretary, and the attorney general have both urged Boris Johnson to resign.
There is currently "an overwhelming sense of hopelessness among Conservative MPs," Suella Braverman told ITV's Peston, adding that "the moment has come for the Prime Minister to resign."
Ms. Braverman declared Mr. Johnson's continued leadership "untenable" and declared her own desire to run for office in the future.
The cabinet minister, who had previously been a steadfast ally of the prime minister, claimed that he had handled things "appallingly" lately.
It kills me to say it, but it's time for the Prime Minister to resign. The scales have tipped in his favor.
If there is a leadership competition, Ms. Braverman declared, "I will enter the fray."
"I like this nation because it provided my parents with opportunity, stability, and hope when they arrived here with nothing. I have had amazing possibilities in this nation for both my work and schooling. Yes, I will attempt because I owe this country a debt of gratitude and because it would be the greatest honor to serve as prime minister."
However, Mr. Hancock added that he would be "glad" to serve in government even though he would not be running for the leadership of the party in the future.When asked if there was a "good probability" the prime minister would now ask her to leave, Ms. Braverman responded, "That is his option and I will do whatever the prime minister asks me to do."
On Wednesday night, a reorganization was taking place at Number 10 as the PM sought to fill the openings left by resignations in his cabinet.
Following a call for his resignation from a number of his top ministers, Mr. Johnson fired Michael Gove as one of his major figures.
Wednesday at 10:45 p.m., watch ITV's Peston live on ITV, Twitter, and the ITV Hub.
