Boris Johnson, U.K. Prime Minster will have to face a confidence vote later Monday because of growing dissatisfaction about his leadership.

For a confidence vote to be triggered, 15 percent of Conservative legislators (or 54 current Tory MPs), must write to Graham Brady, Chairman of the 1922 Committee, which monitors party leadership issues.

Brady declared Monday that the threshold was exceeded.

Tuesday evening, between 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. local time. ET.

Last month a report into several high-profile Covid-19 lockdown-breaking parties at Johnson’s office and residence was released, sparking calls for a confidence vote.
