Leading Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson 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 shock outcome of the June 23rd referendum has led to massive political upheaval, with warnings about the country's economic future and fears about its unity as support for independence surged in pro-EU Scotland.
