British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will face a vote on Monday that could remove him from office.
The no-confidence vote was triggered after a party leader said on Monday that he has received enough letters, 54, from Conservative Party lawmakers to hold a vote on the fate of Johnson’s leadership. The vote will be held in the House of Commons on Monday.
“The threshold of 15% has been passed,” Member of Parliament Graham Brady said Monday, referring to the fact that 15% of Tory’s in the House of Commons have submitted letters demanding the vote.
Johnson will be replaced as leader of the Conservative Party and must resign as prime minister of Britain if he receives a vote of no-confidence from the majority of the 359 Conservative Party lawmakers.
Johnson has been under heavy scrutiny for his role in Britain’s “Partygate” scandal.
