International vision: The British opposition has demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Boris Johnson from his post, after it was revealed that a series of parties or rallies were being held at his Downing Street residence, while the country was under strict restrictions in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The demands for the resignation of the British Prime Minister came from the opposition leader, Keir Starmer, the leader of the opposition Labor Party.

Starmer said it was now in the "national interest" to remove Johnson from his position as prime minister and leader of the Conservative Party and to appoint someone else to replace him.

The demands for the resignation of the British Prime Minister came before a meeting of an association in London.

He added that the British daily see the prime minister mired in a quagmire of deception and unable to lead.

Johnson offered an apology to Parliament and Queen Elizabeth after a series of parties or rallies held at his residence in Downing Street, at a time when the country was subject to strict restrictions in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Mirror reported that Johnson attended a "limited number" of those gatherings when indoor mixing was prohibited.

But the matter became more complicated for Johnson when his office apologized to the Queen after it was found that his employees participated in a party on April 16, 2021, until late at night in Downing Street on the eve of the funeral of her husband, Prince Philip, at a time when the ban on mixing in closed spaces was imposed.

Johnson is now under mounting pressure from his Conservative Party MPs to resign over what appears to be a breach of rules at Cabinet headquarters.
