Marina Wheeler is the wife of British politician Boris Johnson. He is the former Mayor of London, Member of Parliament (MP) for Uxbridge and South Ruislip and probably UK’s new Prime minister after David Cameron announced his resignation after the people voted to leave the European Union.
‘This is not a decision I have taken lightly, but I do believe it is in the national interest to have a period of stability and then the new leadership required.
‘There is no need for a precise timetable today but in my view we should aim to have a new Prime Minister in place by the start of the Conservative Party conference in October.’
He added: ‘Delivering stability will be important. And I will continue in post as Prime Minister with my cabinet for the next three months.’
Mr Cameron said he had spoken to the Queen this morning to alert her to his decision. He also said he would not be triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty but would instead leave it to his successor.
