UK PM Boris Johnson to face no-confidence motion today

The ‘partygate scandal’ is regarding the reports of alcohol-fueled parties in London at a time when strict lockdown was imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Monday, June 6, UK Prime Minister Boris is set to face a no-confidence vote from his own political party over the partygate scandal. The no-confidence voting will be held in the evening.

The ‘partygate scandal’ is regarding the reports of alcohol-fueled parties in London at a time when strict lockdown was imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As per the reports, this party was hosted by PM Boris Johnson. This incident aroused anger among the opposition as well as ruling party against Johnson.

“The threshold of 15% of the parliamentary party seeking a vote of confidence in the leader of the Conservative Party has been exceeded,” said Graham Brady, chairman of the party’s 1922 Committee that represents rank & file. The voting will be held between 6 pm and 8 pm (GMT) today.

The votes will be counted immediately after the no-confidence motion. “The votes will be counted immediately afterwards. An announcement will be made at a time to be advised,” Brady further added.
