10-5-12 主题:布朗辞职 类别:领导人更迭

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced he resigned as prime minister on Tuesday evening.

In a statement outside Downing Street No. 10, Brown said he is to resign and suggests that Conservative Party leader David Cameron (新任首相:保守党领袖卡梅隆)should take over as the Labour party failed to reach a deal with Lib Dems.

He said: "I wish the next prime minister well as he makes the important choices for the future. Only those who have held the office of prime minister can understand the full weight of its responsibilities and its great capacity for good."

Brown said he had "loved the job" and it had been "a privilege to serve."

Brown has tendered his resignation to the Queen after which he will be succeeded by Conservative leader David Cameron who arrived at Buckingham Palace later.
