Brexit campaigner and former London mayor Boris Johnson announces that he won't run for prime minister, at a press conference in central London on June 30, 2016Leading Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson on Thursday ruled himself out of the race to succeed Prime Minister David Cameron in a bombshell announcement just a week after Britain voted to leave the EU. The decision by the former London mayor upended the leadership contest in the ruling Conservative Party and added to the deep uncertainty over how and when Britain will split from the bloc. The maverick Johnson had been tipped as a favourite to succeed Cameron, who resigned after the vote saying he would leave it to his successor to begin formal talks with the EU on Britain's departure -- despite European leaders insisting on a quick divorce.
