LAST UPDATE: 10.20
The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will face a motion of censure, the 1922 Commission of the center-right, ruling Conservative Union Party announced.
According to the head of the party’s most powerful parliamentary committee, the 15% threshold of the parliamentary group has been exceeded, hence the vote will take place in the evening, between 6 and 8 p.m. (local time), while the results will be announced immediately after.
If Boris Johnson loses the vote of confidence in parliament, he will step down as prime minister and there will be a race for Conservative and government leadership to decide who will replace him.
At least 54 Conservative members of parliament were required to formally ask Brady, who is chairman of the party’s 1922 commission, to file a motion of censure against the prime minister so that this could be done.
The letters are confidential, so only the chairman of this committee knows who actually asked to do so.
“I do think it is possible, but I do not know,” Health Minister Sajid Javid told Sky News earlier in response to a question about whether Johnson could face a motion of censure from disgruntled lawmakers in his party.
However, Javid added that the country does not need a challenge from the prime minister now.
