“Prime Minister Tony Blair is announcing Thursday that he will resign after 10 years of leading Britain’s government, a Labour party official said, reports AP.
“Blair was traveling to his northern England parliamentary district to formally announce his plans. He met earlier with Cabinet members, who left No. 10 Downing Street without answering questions shouted by reporters.
“Blair would leave office in late June or early July, depending on how quickly his party elects a successor â€” almost certain to be Treasury Chief Gordon Brown.
“Blair, 54, led Labour to two landslide election wins in 1997 and 2001, and a narrower but still comfortable victory in 2005.”
