Boris Johnson is not facing a distrust resolution by Tory lawmakers

Boris Johnson faces a distrust resolution by Tory lawmakers in the party’s overall anger over disclosures over the blockade party in Downing Street.

In a statement, Sir Graham Brady, chairman of the 1922 Committee’s Backbench, confirmed in a statement that he had received 54 letters from the conservative MPs needed to trigger the vote.

Secret ballot voting will take place Monday between 6 pm and 8 pm in Westminster, shortly thereafter.

It comes after a steady stream of Tory lawmakers publicly calling on the British Prime Minister to resign following Sue Gray’s report of a No. 10 and Whitehall Covid breach.

However, rebels need 180 MPs to expel the prime minister, and Johnson’s allies have revealed that he is determined to fight to stay.

Immediately after Mr. Brady’s announcement, British Health Minister Sajid Javid told Sky News:

Brady said he had informed Johnson on Sunday that he had exceeded the 15 percent threshold of the parliamentary party seeking votes.

“I followed the rules we have set. I notified the Prime Minister yesterday and agreed to a vote of no confidence.”

“He shared my view. This is also in line with the rules we are implementing, and the vote may be rational and should be done as soon as it is today. That’s it. “
