Boris Johnson announces that he will not appear in the primaries to replace Liz Truss

Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced this Sunday that he has decided do not show to the primaries for replace Liz Truss as leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

Johnson said in a statement that, despite having the necessary support from Conservative MPs, he had concluded "it just wouldn’t be right" because "you cannot govern effectively unless you have a united party in Parliament".

After the resignation last Thursday of Liz Truss, who only lasted 45 days in office, the name of Boris Johnson resurfaced to occupy the role of prime minister again, but he resigned last July after feeling cornered by a series of scandals that enveloped his government. Ministers and legislators began to resign asking that he be removed from office because of his position in the face of a sexual scandal and cases of abuse by his party.

One of these scandals was the case of Deputy Bank Chief Chris Pincher, who allegedly groped two people at a private dinner, an action that Johnson allegedly had knowledge of. The officials denounced that the former prime minister lacked the integrity to continue in office and began to resign.
