UK. Boris Johnson was subject to a motion de no confidence by his party on Monday

Boris Johnson, British Prime Minister, could be forced to resign.

Graham Brady, chair of the 1922 committee responsible for internal organizational matters, stated that the threshold of 15% parliamentarians asking for a vote to confidence has been met.

After the vote, the result will be announced.

This vote was triggered by 54 letters from 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.

Prime Minister is happy to present his case

Boris Johnson's spokesperson said that the vote tonight "offers an opportunity to end months worth of speculation and allow government to draw a straight line and respond to the priorities of people". "The Prime Minister is pleased to have the chance to present his case before MPs. He will remind them that there's no stronger political force than when people are united and focussed on the issues that matter most to voters.

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 took "full responsibility" for all events but felt the need to "continue" his work.

Along with the soaring prices which are causing a historical drop in household purchasing power, the scandal has already caused its popularity and led to severe setbacks for Conservatives in local elections in May. He maintained his position, highlighting his leadership role in the Western response against the Russian invasion.

He has been supported by the absence of a clear successor to the Conservatives, who have been at power in the United Kingdom for 12 years.
