Mr. Geidt told a parliamentary committee on Tuesday of his frustration with Boris Johnson’s handling of “Partygate”, the revelation that parties had been held at 10 Downing Street, residence of the British Prime Minister, in full lockdown.
“Resignation is one of the rare but brutal means that a councilor has. I’m glad I was able to express my frustrations in the right way,” he said.
Boris Johnson survived a vote of no confidence in his party last week. Many Tories had lost faith in his ability to rule the country due to Partygate.
