LONDON: Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that he will resign after Britons voted to leave the European Union despite his campaign to keep it in the bloc.

Cameron promised to try to “steady the ship” over the next months and did not give a precise timetable for his departure but said a new leader should be installed by early October.

“I do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination,” the British leader said outside his Downing Street residence.

Flanked by his wife Samantha, Cameron said he had fought to retain Britain’s membership of the EU “head, heart and soul – I held nothing back”.

“The British people have made a very clear decision to take a different path and as such, I think the country requires fresh leadership to take it in this direction.” — AFP
