New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has resigned after an inquiry found he sexually harassed multiple women, prompting efforts to remove him.

“The best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to governing,” he said on Tuesday.

His resignation goes into effect in 14 days. Power will then be transferred to Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul.

Mr Cuomo, 63, faced rising pressure to resign since last week’s report, including from President Joe Biden.

That inquiry from the New York Attorney General’s office found that Mr Cuomo sexually harassed 11 women, including state employees. He has denied all the allegations.

Mr Cuomo is now facing criminal inquiries in several counties.

New York Democrats, who control the statehouse, had started on plans to impeach Mr Cuomo, the son of a former governor, should he not leave willingly.
