Newspaper: Johnson considering leaving politics after stepping down as prime minister

The British newspaper The Telegraph, citing informed sources, reported that the resigned British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is considering the possibility of a final retirement from political life.

Sources told the newspaper: “Johnson does not intend to resign his parliamentary seat at this time to avoid holding a by-election for the House of Commons in the British Parliament in his constituency, which could end in victory for the opposition candidate and be another blow to the ruling Conservative Party.” .

She explained that Johnson “is not convinced of the need to run in the upcoming parliamentary elections, as his predecessor, Theresa May, who is still an MP, did.”

The newspaper indicated that Johnson could return to journalism or lecture on various topics if he left politics.
