David Cameron to stand down as Prime Minister

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Cameron, has announced his resignation after six years in office following the the UK voting to leave the European Union.

Mr Cameron says that he will stay in the role for three more months until October when his successor will replace him.

In a statement outside of Number 10 Downing Street, Mr Cameron said that he has informed Her Majesty The Queen about his decision and the steps forward.

Before he leaves office, Mr Cameron has said that he wants to “steady the ship” over the coming weeks and months.

The news of his resignation comes after the United Kingdom voted leave the European Union in a referendum, despite the Prime Minister’s plea to Remain.

The leave campaign won with 52% of votes, with the remain campaign only getting 48% of votes.

Speculation is now mounting over who will become the new Prime Minister in October. Some popular names being mentioned currently include former Mayor of London Boris Johnson, Home Secretary Theresa May and Minister of State for Energy Andrea Leadsom.
