David Cameron Resigns As Witney MP
David Cameron Resigns As Witney MP: Former UK Prime Minister David Cameron has stepped down as MP for Witney, triggering a by-election in the Oxfordshire seat.
The 49-year-old, who resigned as prime minister after June’s EU referendum, told the chairman of his Conservative Association and constituency agent before making the announcement.
In his speech, he stated that he did not want to be a “distraction” for new PM Theresa May, The Guardian reports.
Mr Cameron’s decision comes two months after he quit as Prime Minister on July 13 in the wake of defeat in the EU referendum.
