MPs from the Conservative Party are seeking to lose confidence in him.. British Prime Minister: I will not resign and wait for the results of the investigations
Sources from the ruling Conservative Party in Britain revealed that about 20 of the party’s deputies intend to send letters to a specialized committee calling for a vote of no confidence in Prime Minister Boris Johnson, against the backdrop of the party crisis in his headquarters and suspicions of misleading Parliament.
The same sources indicated that if 54 MPs from the party submitted this request, a vote of no-confidence in Johnson would be organized immediately.
She added that a group of party deputies – who were elected in 2019 – met on Tuesday for the first time to discuss this issue.
Al-Jazeera correspondent revealed that the British Conservative Party MP, Christian Wakeford, defected from the party, calling on Johnson to resign.
The British Prime Minister confirmed that he would not resign, indicating that he should wait for the results of the investigation into the circumstances of the government headquarters parties.
Some lawmakers tend to file motions of no-confidence after the fact-finding report overseen by civil servant Sue Gray, but sources said other lawmakers want Johnson to be impeached as soon as possible.
The Times reported that Sue Gray was “deeply shocked” and said she was concerned that government officials were withholding information from her.
And the media recently revealed that a number of Johnson’s government employees held two separate noisy parties, which included music, dancing and drinking alcohol, in Downing Street, the night before Prince Philip’s funeral in mid-April 2021.
On Friday, the British government apologized to Queen Elizabeth II, as the Johnson administration sent a letter of apology to the 95-year-old Queen through official channels, and Johnson did not send it personally.
Johnson did not attend either party, as he was quarantined due to contact with a family member with Covid-19, at his official residence in Checkers at the time.
