Yuriko Koike will resign as leader of the Party of Hope, sources close to the matter said on Tuesday, after the fledgling party formed by the popular Tokyo governor performed poorly in the general election last month.

Koike's announcement comes following a dismal performance by the Party of Hope in the general election here on October 22.
