‘I’m not going to give in’: The UK’s new leader vows to hold a second referendum
- by admin
NEW YORK — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday vowed to hold an in-out referendum on whether the country should remain in the European Union or leave.
The announcement came as Johnson and his advisers are preparing to announce a new cabinet and start preparations for the first ministers meeting.
Johnson told a press conference in New York that his new Cabinet, which will include his wife and his two children, will include a deputy prime minister and a minister for the interior.
He said the new Cabinet will have “a clear agenda” and a “vision” for the country.
“I am very clear with you that I will not allow Britain to go back into the European single market,” Johnson said.
He said his new cabinet will include “people who will understand what’s at stake in the coming weeks,” and that he wants to work closely with the European Parliament.
British officials said the prime minister will appoint two new cabinet ministers and that a new government will be formed by the end of next week.
The cabinet will be made up of three ministers, including the deputy prime minster and a deputy minister for international trade, a cabinet spokeswoman said.
It is unclear what the new cabinet’s top job will be.
A second referendum on the UK’s EU membership is expected in 2020.
