Boris Johnson is fighting for political survival after two of his top ministers attacked his leadership and resigned.

New Delhi, 06 July 2022

As per news report of BBC, Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid quit within 10 minutes of each other, followed by a flurry of junior ministers and aides. Critics said it was "over" for the prime minister, while Labour said the party he led was corrupted. But a No 10 source said Mr Johnson was determined to continue in office and "deliver what he promised the people". In a move to shore up his government with a cabinet reshuffle, he named Nadhim Zahawi as the new chancellor, while the prime minister's chief of staff, Steve Barclay, has become health secretary. Mr Johnson will come under further pressure later on Wednesday as he faces MPs at Prime Minister's Questions.
