Nigel Adams resigns as MP, triggers third by-election for Rishi Sunak

Nigel Adams, a close associate of former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, announced his immediate resignation as MP, leading to yet another by-election. This development comes on the heels of Johnson’s resignation last week, putting additional pressure on current Prime Minister Rishi Sunak as he faces a third by-election in Adams’s Selby and Ainsty constituency. Initially, Adams had planned to step down at the upcoming general election but has chosen to follow Johnson and Nadine Dorries in resigning at this time.

Adams was first elected as MP for Selby and Ainsty in 2010, and during his tenure, he served in various government roles under both Theresa May and Boris Johnson.
