It was not clear whether Johnson would continue to play the role of caretaker while his successor was selected.

Many said he should leave immediately and hand over to his deputy Dominic Raab, saying he had lost the trust of his party.

Keir Starmer, the leader of the major opposition Labor Party, said he would call a vote of no confidence in Congress if the Conservatives did not dismiss him immediately.
