SC verdict: Lawmakers call for the resignation of Boris Johnson

Agency News

London: Soon after the Britain’s Supreme Court ruled as ‘unlawful’ the Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s move to suspend parliament in the run-up to Brexit, many British Lawmakers have called for the resignation of Boris Johnson.

Kickstarting the demand, Labour's deputy leader Tom Watson tweeted: “Johnson "should resign."

Conservative MP Tom Tugendhat, in an apparent show of support for the decision against his party leader, tweeted a picture of himself inside the House of Commons chamber.

Taking to Twitter, Backbencher David Lammy wrote: “Boris Johnson broke the law and lied to the Queen. Now open the doors of Parliament and resign.”

Repeating the demand for the resignation of Boris Johnson, SNP's Westminster leader Ian Blackford, in a tweet, demanded: “Supreme Court determines that prorogation was unlawful. Parliament must now reconvene. We must hold the Government to account for its actions. @BorisJohnson should now resign having acted out with the law. Parliament has not been prorogued. Let’s get back to work.”
