Why did Rishi Sunak resign even after Boris Johnson's apology?

Britain’s Finance Minister Rishi Sunak and Health Minister Sajid Javid have resigned from the government. He has said that he no longer trusts the leadership of Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Rishi Sunak said that people expect the government to work seriously and properly. On the other hand, Sajid Javid has said in his resignation that the government is not working in the interest of the nation. The resignations of both came shortly after Prime Minister Boris apologized.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has apologized for giving official responsibility to MP Chris Pincher. Britain’s Education Minister Nadim Zhawi will take over responsibility for the Finance Ministry and Downing Street Chief of Staff Steve Barclay will replace Sajid Javid. At the same time, Higher Education Minister Michelle Donelan was promoted and appointed Minister of Education.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has admitted he made a big mistake in appointing Pincher as deputy chief earlier this year. Boris Johnson was aware of the allegations against Pincher even when he had appointed him.

Johnson has said in a BBC interview that a mistake has been made. Johnson said he apologizes to those who have been affected by his decision. Along with the opposition, his own deputy also criticized this decision by Boris Johnson.

Along with Sunak, Javid, Bim Afolami has also resigned from the post of Vice President of the Conservative Party. Apart from this, Andrew Morrison has resigned from the position of trade ambassador. Ministry colleagues Jonathan Gullis and Saqib Bhati also resigned. But according to information received by the BBC, Chancellor Liz Truss, Minister Michael Gove and other cabinet ministers have supported Boris Johnson.

As well as Culture Minister Nadine Dorries, Brexit Minister Jacob Rees-Mogg is considered a Boris Johnson loyalist and has publicly supported the prime minister. The resignations of two senior ministers have again raised questions about Johnson’s leadership. He recently won the motion of no confidence. From June next year, according to the party rules, there will be no challenge for Boris Johnson.

In response to the resignations, Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer said he would welcome an early election and that the country needed a change of government.

He said: “After all the sleaze, all the failure, it is clear that this Tory government is now collapsing.”

The next general election is expected to be held in 2024 but could be sooner if Johnson were to use his powers to call one.

The leader of the Liberal Democrats, Sir Ed Davey, said the Prime Minister’s “government of chaos has failed our country” and called for him to leave.

Scottish First Minister and SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon said “the whole rotten bunch” of the Johnson government should go, accusing ministers of “lying to the public”.

Tuesday was a dramatic day for UK politics, which saw, before the resignation of two chief ministers, the prime minister apologize for not sacking Pincher when allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced against him in 2019. before that, a former senior official accused Downing Street of lying about the issue even as Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab defended the government on television.
