Boris Johnson will not attend the World Economic Forum in Davos next year, nor will any of his ministers, a U.K. official said.

The prime minister won an 80-seat majority in last week’s election by promising to deliver on the priorities of ordinary British people, principally getting Britain out of the European Union Jan. 31.
