Boris Johnson accepted a motion of confidence from his party

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be facing a vote against confidence by Conservative Party MPs Monday evening, June 6.

Graham Brady, the chairman of the 1922 committee for internal organization issues, stated that the threshold of 15% parliamentarians who requested a vote to confidence from the leader in the Conservative Party had been met. The vote will be held between 6 and 8 p.m., local time. The result will be announced immediately.

This vote was activated by 54 letters sent to MPs. In the event that the Prime Minister loses, an internal election will be held to appoint a new Party leader who will then become Prime Minister. He cannot be subject to another motion of confidence for one year if he wins.

Boris's spokesperson said that "(The vote tonight) provides an opportunity for us to end months worth of speculation and allow our government to draw a line" and to address the priorities of the people. Johnson released a statement.

The scandal that plagued the Conservative government for six-months is far from being over. Last week's publication of an administrative report detailing the extent to which anti-Covid rules were broken at Downing Street has led to new calls for resignation.

Boris Johnson was also fined, which is unusual for a Prime Minister in Office. He said that he accepted "full responsibility" for all events but felt he needed to "continue" his work.

He has been criticized for his scandal and the soaring prices which are leading to a significant drop in household purchasing power. This has led to heavy losses for the Tories in May's local elections. He maintained his independence by highlighting his leadership in the Western response against the Russian invasion in Ukraine.

He has been supported by the absence of a clear successor within the ranks of Conservatives, who have been at power in the UK for 12 years.
