UK interior minister resigns

The second senior minister to leave the government in less than a week, Braverman’s departure heaps yet more pressure on Truss as she fights to stay in power just over six weeks after she entered Downing Street. “I have made a mistake, I accept responsibility; I resign,” Braverman said in a letter to Truss posted on Twitter. She said she had sent an official document from her personal email to a parliamentary colleague, adding that this marked “a technical infringement of the rules” and that it was therefore “right for me to go”.

Braverman served as an Attorney General from 2020 to 2022 and was elected to the UK Parliament from Fairham during that same time period. Under former Prime Minister Theresa May, Braverman worked in the Brexit department as a junior minister but she resigned in protest over May’s proposed Brexit deal.

Braverman’s resignation is a blow to the UK government, which is already facing criticism over its handling of Brexit. Braverman was a key member of the government’s legal team during the Brexit negotiations, and her resignation will be seen as a further setback for the government.
