Tom Watson, the deputy leader of Britain's Labour Party, on Wednesday said he would stand down as a lawmaker at December's election, citing personal reasons.

"Now is the right time for me to stand down from the House of Commons and start a different kind of life. The decision is personal, not political," Watson said in a letter to party leader Jeremy Corbyn, adding that he would continue as Deputy Leader until the election on Dec. 12.
