LONDON — Former U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Friday that he’s quitting as a lawmaker after being told he will be sanctioned for misleading Parliament.
Johnson quit after receiving the results of an investigation by lawmakers over misleading statements he made to Parliament about a slew of gatherings in government that breached pandemic lockdown rules.
In a statement, he accused opponents of trying to drive him out.
Johnson quit as prime minister in 2022 amid multiple scandals but remained a lawmaker.
