UK PM Boris Johnson to face no-confidence motion on Monday

The no-confidence will be held at 6 pm on Monday and the results will be declared later in the day

Britain’s governing Conservatives will hold a no-confidence vote in Prime Minister Boris Johnson that could oust him as Britain’s leader.

Party official Graham Brady says he has received enough letters from lawmakers demanding a vote on Johnson’s leadership to trigger one. That happens if 54 Tory lawmakers - 15% of the party's group in the House of Commons - write to Brady.

“The threshold of 15% has been passed," Brady said. He said the vote would take place in person in the House of Commons on Monday evening.

If Johnson loses the vote among the 359 Conservative lawmakers, he will be replaced as Conservative leader and prime minister. If he wins, he can't face another challenge for a year.

Johnson has been struggling to turn a page on months of ethics scandals, most notably over rule-breaking parties in government buildings during COVID-19 lockdowns.

Following a report into lockdown rule-breaking, Johnson had said it was time to "move on" and focus on other responsibilities such as the war in Ukraine and U.K. cost of living.

But a growing number of Conservatives feel that Johnson, the charismatic leader who won them a huge parliamentary majority in 2019, is now a liability.

If Johnson is ousted it would spark a Conservative leadership contest, in which several prominent government ministers are likely to run.
