British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson is facing the growing threat of a confidence vote as two more lawmakers suggested they had lost faith in his government over the “partygate” scandal.
A Former Party leader, John Stevenson, said he could be challenged next week.
Stevenson, a Conservative member of parliament, said he had been deeply disappointed by the rule-breaking parties during the COVID-19 national lockdowns and called on the Prime Minister to put himself forward for a vote of confidence as a way to “draw the line” under the issues.
An official report published last week detailed a series of illegal parties at Johnson’s Downing Street office during COVID-19 lockdowns, prompting a new wave of calls for the Conservative Prime Minister to step aside.
More than twenty-five Conservative lawmakers have called on Johnson to resign, while at least a further six have criticised his conduct but stopped short of saying he should resign.
