PM Johnson will not resign it parliament rejects government agenda – spokesman
LONDON – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will not resign if parliament rejects his government’s programme as set out on Monday in the so-called Queen’s Speech, his spokesman said.
Earlier, Queen Elizabeth set out Johnson’s agenda for his government, with a repeated commitment to leave the European Union on Oct. 31 and a host of domestic policies to try to win over voters before an expected election.
Johnson’s Conservatives do not have a majority in parliament, which is due to vote on the Queen’s Speech next week.
