Cameron to remain PM: Foreign Min

While there was no official word from Cameron himself, mediapersons waited eagerly for his response outside his residence.

However, Leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) called on Cameron's immediate resignation if the 'Leave' vote won in the European Union (EU) referendum resulting in the country's exit.

On Thursday, Britain voted in favour of leaving the European Union. UK Electoral Commission said 17.4 million voted to leave EU whereas 16.1 million voted to remain.

As expected the result sent ripples across the world as the pound fell to its lowest level against the dollar since 1985.

Cameron had on Thursday made a final appeal to the voters to vote in favour of 'Remain'.
