This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government

Rejected petition David Cameron should withdraw his resignation and remain Prime Minister.

A year ago, over 11 million Britons voted for David Cameron to be their Prime Minister. In his resignation speech, he said that, 'the will of the British People is an instruction that must be delivered'. Let him practice what he preaches and continue to 'deliver' our instruction of May 2015.

More details

David Cameron has provided stability and fine leadership for the UK over the past 6 years. Right now, the country needs stability more than ever before during his tenure. He might not agree with Brexit but, as he says, democratic leaders 'deliver the instruction' of their nation. They do not walk away when they are most needed.

This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the UK Government or Parliament is not responsible for.

The resignation of an individual Minister, including the Prime Minister, is not a decision for the Government or Parliament as a whole. It is a decision for the individual concerned. The UK Government or Parliament cannot stop a Minister resigning.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
