Boris Johnson to face No Confidence Motion: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, embroiled in controversy, will face the No Confidence Motion on Monday regarding the Partygate scandal. This was announced by the chairman of a committee of the Conservative Party. This step is being taken a few days after new information related to the Partygate case surfaced.
Sir Graham Brady, in charge of no-confidence letters received by the committee, said 54 MPs (15 percent) of the Tory parliamentary party are demanding it and will be placed in the House of Commons on Monday evening. The vote on the no-confidence motion is being held after weeks of deadlock within the ruling Conservative Party. Several MPs and former ministers have expressed concern about illegally organizing a party on Downing Street in violation of COVID-19 rules. Brady said in a statement that the required 15 percent of the parliamentary party vote for the no-confidence vote had been achieved.
When will the UK Parliament vote?
He said that according to the rules, voting will be held on Monday, June 6, between 6 pm and 8 pm (local time), detailed information will be shared in this regard. They will be counted immediately after voting. The result will be announced as per the suggestion. Information in this regard will be shared today.
According to analysts, Johnson (57) is likely to win the vote, but it will certainly deal a major blow to his leadership. Rebel lawmakers would need 180 votes to remove Johnson as party leader and prime minister. Under current Conservative Party rules, if Johnson wins, he will not face another such no-confidence motion for at least 12 months.
