Deputy Prime Minister of Australia Barnaby Joyce has resigned after accused of sexual harassment.
 
He was accused over an affair with a now-pregnant former aide showed no sign of abating. 
 
Barnaby Joyce says he will resign on Monday as leader of the Nationals, the junior government partner. 
 
Mr Joyce had resisted calls to quit amid questions over whether he had breached ministerial rules. 
 
He called his decision on Friday a "circuit-breaker". 
 
"This current cacophony of issues has to be put aside," he told reporters. 
 
The scandal has dominated Australian politics for more than two weeks. 
 
Last week, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull publicly criticised Mr Joyce's "shocking error of judgement" and said ministers would be banned from having sex with their staff.-BBC
