British Prime Minister Boris Johnson survived a no-confidence vote from his party caucus today by a vote of 211-148.

The PM won 59% of the vote, meaning he is now immune from a Conservative leadership challenge for 12 months.

Johnson, who became prime minister in 2019, was informed he would face a vote on his leadership on Sunday during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The ballot was triggered by Conservative MPs after at least 15% of them wrote letters of no confidence to Sir Graham Brady, the chairman of the party’s backbench 1922 Committee.

Johnson, who turns 58 on June 19, has been struggling to turn a page on months of ethics scandals… primarily during COVID lockdowns. He was accused of attending various parties at a time when the public was told to refrain from such activity.
