The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, has faced on Monday afternoon a motion of internal censure of his Conservative Party, after months of attrition by the ‘Partygate’. The Prime Minister considered his victory in the Conservative Party’s internal censure motion to be “convincing” and assured that he intends to “move forward” at the head of the Executive. “What we must do now is to unite, as a government and as a party,” to “focus on the things that I think people really care about,” Johnson told the BBC
In recent weeks, Tory MPs have shown their discontent with the prime minister. The internal report, prepared by high-ranking official Sue Gray, called for the clarification of “responsibilities” in the Government. The document assured that the British executive incurred “leadership failures”. In addition, “most of the meetings that took place did not respect the sanitary restrictions and guidelines imposed at that time”.
Johnson came to power initially on July 24, 2019, after winning an election within the Conservative Party to replace his predecessor, Theresa May, expiatory victim of ‘Brexit’ and who ended up resigning after overcoming a motion of censure among her colleagues such as the one called yesterday.
Having passed the motion of censure, with 211 votes in favour, a new motion against him could not be called in the next twelve months.
