LONDON, July 7 (Reuters) – Britain’s new finance minister Nadhim Zahawi told Boris Johnson to resign on Thursday, a lot less than 48 hours immediately after the key minister promoted him to the career, saying the crisis engulfing the governing administration would only get even worse.
“This is not sustainable and it will only get even worse, for you, for the Conservative Social gathering and most importantly of all the region,” Zahawi reported on Twitter right after more than 50 ministers and aides resigned from the govt.
“You have to do the correct matter and go now.”

Zahawi did not say he experienced resigned, but stated he went to the primary minister’s office in Downing Avenue with cupboard colleagues on Wednesday night to notify Johnson to “leave with dignity”.
“I am heartbroken that he has not listened and that he is now undermining the incredible achievements of this govt,” Zahawi explained in a letter.
“The place warrants a govt that is not only stable, but which functions with integrity. Primary Minister you know in your heart what the ideal point to do is, and go now.”
