PM Johnson won his premiership in ‘vote of no confidence’ battle


The United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson won the vote of no confidence on Monday. PM Johnson has retained his post and can serve as the Prime Minister of the country.

A Vote of No Confidence is the Westminister system of parliament. It indicates that the ruling party or coalition no longer has the support to continue serving as the government. It is accepted in many countries such as the United Kingdom, Australia and India.


The Parliament of the United Kingdom held a vote of no confidence against the present prime minister Boris Johnson due to his political scandal where PM Johnson and other party members celebrated his birthday party and sidestepped the government’s own lockdown protocols for social gatherings multiple times.

Moreover, while the whole nation was mourning for the lives of their loved ones due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PM Johnson and Conservative party staff attended parties amid COVID lockdown.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson did not accept that he broke any ethical ministerial codes. Opponents parties used the scandal as an opportunity to portray Johnson and his government as ineffective. The people who attended the party, including PM Johnson, were fined heavily.

However, 211 members from the Conservative party voted in favour of PM Johnson, while 148 members voted against him. This showing is worse than the last time such a vote took place. In 2018, Prime Minister Theresa May survived a vote of co confidence with 63 % backing from her own party.

That was higher than Johnson’s 58 % backing. Five months after surviving her vote, Prime Minister May resigned due to members of her party disagreeing with her leadership concerning Brexit.

While no Prime Minister has lost a vote of no confidence since 1979 (James Callaghan), four have resigned since then (Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Theresa May).
