The Foreign Minister, Boris Johnson, resigned from his post on the 9th of July 2018

Few hours after the resignation of the Brexit Secretary David Davis, Boris Johnson resigned from his post as Minister of Foreign Affairs, amid growing political crisis caused by Brexit. He announced his decision shortly before Teresa May's speech in Parliament, where she was to announce a strategy for a new plan for the country's withdrawal from the EU. The new "soft Brexit" faced a negative feedback from Tory MPs.

Mr. Johnson has held the post of Minister of Foreign Affairs since June 2016, and was also the “face” of Leave Campaign during the 2016 referendum.
