Veteran UK Minister Is The Most Recent To Resign Following Rishi Sunak’s Poll Declaration

The most well-known Conservative politician to leave the legislature in advance of the general election in July is none other than a prominent member of UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s administration, who left on Friday. As the 77th Tory MP to declare that they would not seek reelection, Housing Minister Michael Gove was formerly an ally of former Prime Minister Boris Johnson and a previous minister of education, justice, and the environment. Since 2015, the 56-year-old ex-journalist has worked for four prime leaders of the Conservative Party. “After nearly twenty years serving the wonderful people of Surrey Heath (his constituency) and over a decade in cabinet across five government departments, I have today taken the decision to step down,” he wrote on X, which was previously Twitter.
