BRI­TISH EX-PM CAMERON QUITS POL­I­TICS

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

LON­DON: Bri­tain’s for­mer prime min­is­ter David Cameron re­signed his seat in the House of Com­mons on Mon­day, less than three months af­ter los­ing an EU ref­er­en­dum in which he had cam­paigned to stay in the bloc. Cameron stepped down as premier in June, hours af­ter Bri­tain’s dra­matic vote to leave the EU, hand­ing power to Theresa May in July. The for­mer premier was pil­lo­ried af­ter the shock ref­er­en­dum de­feat. His res­ig­na­tion from par­lia­ment is un­usu­ally quick. For­mer prime min­is­ters have typ­i­cally re­tained their seats for a num­ber of years af­ter leav­ing of­fice. – AFP
