British PM Gordon Brown has resigned

Gordon Brown resigned as prime minister of Britain on Tuesday and said Conservative leader David Cameron would take over, ending 13 years of rule by the center-left Labour Party.

According Washington Post, “British Prime Minister Gordon Brown says he’s quitting office and bringing to a close the Labour Party’s 13-year hold on power, as his two chief rivals sealed a coalition deal after the country’s inconclusive election.

Brown says he will travel to see Queen Elizabeth II to resign – allowing opposition Conservative Party chief David Cameron to take office after Cameron struck a deal with Nick Clegg, leader of the third-placed Liberal Democrats”. Brown’s statement made clear that the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats had secured some sort of power-sharing arrangement, but the exact details were not yet known.
