In my last address as Prime Minister and Labour Party Leader, I said that I would resign as a member of parliament in the coming months.
Today, Parliament began meeting following the summer recess, and with this letter, I am submitting my resignation as a Parliamentary Member after more than 12 years serving in the chamber, after serving four years within the European Parliament.
I am proud of the service I gave at the best of my ability as Prime Minister for two terms, as Opposition Leader, and as an MP for three terms. I am proud that in two legislatures I was given the responsibility of the largest amount of votes any member in the chamber ever had.
Despite my nature telling me that I should have done more, avoided mistakes, and introduce more changes, I am happy that my contribution to the country allowed it to be in a better position and more unified than it ever was before.
I thank you, your predecessors, and the Parliamentary staff for the courtesy you always showed me.
