Prime Minister Boris Johnson will face a no-confidence vote on Monday, the UK editor of ITV reported, citing "rebels" in the ruling Conservative Party, after the British leader was booed at the Jubilee ceremonies. Platinum the weekend due to, among other things, the "partygate"
Johnson, appointed prime minister in 2019, has come under mounting pressure, unable to get away with a damaging report about parties held at his office and Downing Street residence when Britain was under strict Covid-19 lockdowns.
Dozens of Conservative lawmakers have raised concerns about whether Johnson, 57, has lost his authority to govern Britain, which faces the risk of recession, soaring fuel and food prices and chaos in commuting in the capital, London, due to the strike.
The motion of confidence, which will take place between 6 and 8 p.m. (local time), has been possible when the Conservative Party receives the number of petitions necessary to launch this procedure, 54 deputies.
If the vote of confidence is reached, 180 Conservative lawmakers would have to vote against Johnson for him to be impeached, a level some Conservatives say could be difficult to reach. If it passes, there would then be a leadership contest to decide his replacement.
