Former British Prime Minister David Cameron, who resigned from the UK’s top office in the wake of the Brexit vote in July, has announced he will stand down as a member of parliament for his constituency of Witney immediately, according to the Press Association.
Cameron, who was replaced by Theresa May in July, had served as an MP since 2001.
“In my view, with modern politics, with the circumstances of my resignation it isn’t really possible to be a proper backbench MP as a former prime minister,” he told ITV Monday.
“I think everything you do will become a big distraction and a big diversion from what the government needs to do for our country.”
