In his first government reshuffle that began Monday night, British Prime Minister David Cameron removed Baroness Sayeeda Warsi as the co-chairperson of the Conservative Party, Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday.
After her removal from the post, Warsi announced that she was stepping down in a message posted on the official account of co-Chairman of the Conservative Party:
Earlier, she had appealed to Cameron to let her maintain her post in order to win seats in the North. Warsi told Daily Telegraph: “I’m a woman, I’m not white, I’m from an urban area, I’m from the North, I’m working class – I kind of fit the bill. All the groups that we’re aiming for are groups that I’m familiar with.”
The British Prime Minister will continue shuffling ministerial jobs today.
