UK Deputy PM, Dominic Raab, resigns over bullying allegations
Dominic Raab, the UK Justice Secretary and Deputy Prime Minister, has resigned following allegations that he bullied staff members while serving as a cabinet minister across various UK government departments. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak received the independent report into the allegations made by several civil servants on Thursday, and Raab’s resignation had been expected since then. In his resignation letter, which he posted on Twitter, Raab, 49, disclosed that the report upheld two claims against him. Despite feeling duty-bound to accept the inquiry’s outcome, Raab deemed the two claims “flawed” and believed they established a dangerous precedent for good governance.
