The former British Foreign Minister, Boris Johnson, confirmed today that, "of course", will try to succeed Theresa May once the race for succession is opened, to which several eurosceptic deputies try to put a clear date in full political chaos over the process of leaving the EU.
During an act in Manchester, Johnson has responded overwhelmingly to a question about his hypothetical candidacy, according to the BBC. "Of course I'm going to go for it, I do not think it's any secret," said the former mayor of London, who resigned from the government in July 2018 for the supposed warmth of May in the Brexit negotiations.
The "premier" has announced that it will resign once the House of Commons ratifies the divorce agreement with the EU, something that is not clear what will happen. The government plans to make its fourth attempt – and supposedly the last one – in the week of June 3 and still hopes that the British MEPs who are elected next week will not take office at the beginning of July.
"The prime minister has run out of time to accept that the game is over. His leadership has failed and his authority is already damaged, "Nick Timothy, former chief of staff at May, wrote in the" Daily Telegraph ". "Every day that passes complicates the life of those who lead the United Kingdom in the future," he warned.
