Opposition lawmakers have called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to resign after what British media called a “historic” ruling by the Supreme Court that his suspension of parliament was unlawful.

“Delighted that @UKSupremeCourt have followed Scottish court & found that @BorisJohnson acted unlawfully,” tweeted Scottish National Party lawmaker Joanna Cherry, who led a successful challenge to the suspension in Scotland.

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also called for Johnson to “consider his position” and become Britain’s “shortest serving prime minister.”

Speaking at a Labour conference, Corbyn demanded the immediate recall of parliament.
