After the historic Brexit’s shocking results in which Britain reels out of UK, David Cameron is all set to step down as Britain’s PM voted to leave the EU in a referendum that has sent shock waves across the whole World.
The result has given an embarrassing blow to Cameron, who had always opposed breaking with the European Union.
“I do not think it will be right for me to be the captain to steer the country to the next destination and the will of the British people is an instruction that must be delivered,” Cameron stated in the press conference.
Cameron cited job growth and the legalisation of gay marriages as achievements of his time as prime minister.
“I’m very proud and very honoured to have been prime minister of this country for six years,” he said.
David Cameron stated, he intends to remain prime minister until October, then he will step down.
Cameron has said in his resignation speech that he wants a new Prime Minister to be in place by October of this year.
Cameron added, “I will do everything I can as Prime Minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months.But I do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination.”
“This is not a decision I’ve taken lightly but I’ve taken it in the national interest to have a period of stability and the new leadership required.There is no need to have a precise timetable today but in my view we should have a new Prime Minister in place by the start of the Conservative Party conference in October.” declaimed cameron.
