LONDON – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday he would be leaving soon with his “head held high”, a week after he was forced to resign after losing the support of key government ministers and his lawmakers.

“I am … proud of the leadership I have given and I will be leaving soon with my head held high,” Johnson told parliament. He also said the Conservative Party would unite around the winner of the leadership contest to replace him.
