Boris Johnson prepares for motion of censure amid erosion of support in his own party

The Boris Johnson government, which has been heavily criticized for organizing pandemic government office parties, has begun admitting that it will face a motion of censure. “The vote of confidence may take place, but the prime minister will be able to stay in office,” Paul Scully, secretary of state for business environment, said on Sunday evening. “Whatever happens, we need to get back to government, to address the issues that people face every day,” said Paul Scully.

“Boris Johnson will survive the censure motion, but his position will clearly be weakened,” said another Conservative politician.

According to parliamentary sources, the motion of censure against the Boris Johnson government could be debated and voted on in a few days.

The motion of censure will be initiated if at least 54 such requests are received in the 1992 Committee of the Conservative Party. So far, 18 Conservative MPs have publicly announced that they have filed motions for censorship, but according to Conservative Party sources, the number of MPs who want to oust Prime Minister Boris Johnson is 70.

Angela Rayner, the vice-president of the Labor Party (opposition), harshly criticized Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson, calling for the creation of a parliamentary committee on ethics and integrity in the wake of a pandemic party scandal in government offices. “Boris Johnson has proved inadequate to maintain high standards in public life and is lowering his level every day he takes office, trying to set the rules in the context of a deliberately misleading investigation into Parliament.” , said Angela Rayner.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has “real problems” and is likely to be targeted by a motion of censure very soon, said William Hague, a former Conservative Party leader, amid criticism of government offices for breaking anti-epidemic rules.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the leader of the Conservative Party, said he was taking responsibility and deeply regretted breaking the rules at government office parties, but insisted that the scandal be overcome.

An official report by Susan Gray, deputy secretary of the British Cabinet Office, found that the Boris Johnson government had “seriously failed” to comply with anti-epidemic regulations. “Whatever the intentions, what happened at these events and how they unfolded were not in line with the anti-COVID regulations of the time. Allowing pressure on officials and advisers, some attitudes were incompatible with the regulations. “, shows the report presented by Susan Gray.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has recently been fined by London police in investigations into government-run parties during the pandemic, and the Labor opposition is demanding his resignation. Boris Johnson initially denied that the anti-epidemic rules had been violated, and later argued that he did not realize this had happened. Downing Street officials have denied that Boris Johnson intentionally misled Parliament.
