Sir Graham Brady, the chair of the British Conservative Party’s 1922 Committee, has announced that the threshold has been reached for a vote of confidence in the leadership of Boris Johnson. It has been scheduled to take place on Monday evening.
There will be a two-hour window for voting, with results announced at a point of time yet to be determined, a statement outlined. Brady said the results will be available “shortly” after the ballot closes.
Johnson is facing a challenge due to a number of scandals that have occurred under his leadership, including what has become known as “partygate” – several instances when government officials held gatherings in violation of their own Covid-19 restrictions. Opponents of the prime minister believe he has failed the country and his party and should be ousted.
