So far 25 statements – MPs withdraw confidence from Johnson


British Prime Minister Boris Johnson faces a vote of no confidence on Wednesday. According to the Sunday Times newspaper, 25 Conservative MPs have so far stated publicly that they have applied for one. In order to actually vote, at least 54 representatives of your own party are required.

The Tories’ mistrust of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has risen again after the publication of the report of the investigation into the Partygate scandal. So far, 25 politicians have stated that they have asked to vote on Johnson’s continued leadership. Some MPs assume that the threshold of 54 letters has already been reached, wrote the Sunday Times.

Johnson apologized for behavior
Should a vote of no confidence pass on Wednesday, at least 180 of the 359 Tory MPs would still have to vote against the prime minister to make him lose his job. Johnson has apologized multiple times for violating strict contact restrictions in the coronavirus pandemic, but has refused to resign. Government faces too many challenges and it is irresponsible to run away from them.

He received support on Sunday from, among others, the British Transport Secretary Grant Shapps. Politicians do not always expect to be popular and often have to make difficult decisions. Shapps does not believe in a vote of no confidence.

Elections on June 23
Two Tory-owned constituencies have recently resigned following scandals. Therefore, by-elections are scheduled for June 23.
