Tory MPs will decide the fate of Prime Minister Boris Johnson tonight, after a vote of confidence in his leadership was triggered. Sir Graham Brady, chairman of the 1922 Committee of Conservative MPs, told reporters that at least 54 Conservative MPs had submitted letters of no confidence in the embattled PM.
That means an anonymous vote on whether or not to remove Mr Johnson as PM will take place between 6pm and 8pm today. A spokesperson for 10 Downing Street says Mr Johnson “welcomes the opportunity to make his case to MPs” and believes it will “allow the government to draw a line and move on”.
But even if Mr Johnson wins tonight’s vote it could leave him severely weakened – his predecessor Theresa May resigned within six months of winning her vote of no confidence. So, if Mr Johnson’s time really is up, who do you think should take over?
With some predicting Mr Johnson would call a snap election rather than admit defeat and step down as leader, is Labour leader Keir Starmer still his main challenger? Or do you believe someone else from within the Conservative Party should take charge, like Jeremy Hunt, Liz Truss, or Rishi Sunak?
