London — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was expected to resign in just over an hour, began appointing a new minister to the Cabinet on Thursday, including a third Secretary of Education.

Forced to resign after the minister and conservative legislators resigned or withdrew their support, Johnson appointed Greg Clark as a "level-up" secretary and James Cleverly as the minister of education. ..

Reflecting the turmoil at the center of British power, Johnson moved Nadim Zahawi from the Secretary of Education to run the Ministry of Finance on Tuesday night. By Wednesday Zahawi had told Johnson to quit, and by Thursday he had been made public by the call.

The Prime Minister also appointed Michel Donneran as Minister of Education to replace Zahawi on Tuesday night, but Johnson said he needed to go and he quit by Thursday morning. (Report by MuvijaM and William James, Written by Sachin Ravikumar, Edited by Kate Holton and Michael Holden)
