LONDON — Britain’s beleaguered prime minister, Theresa Might, faces a no-confidence vote Wednesday, after 48 lawmakers from her personal Conservative Get together submitted letters of protest, posing a brand new and probably deadly menace to her management.
The information was introduced by Graham Brady, the chairman of the backbench 1922 committee of Conservative lawmakers who stated that the competition would happen Wednesday night.
Underneath the get together’s guidelines Mrs. Might must win 158 votes from among the many 315 Conservative members of Parliament to remain as get together chief and due to this fact prime minister. If she does so, then get together members can’t mount one other problem to her management for a 12 months, but when she loses the vote, then she withdraws and one other chief will likely be chosen over the approaching weeks.
Mrs. Might’s prospects have been endangered by the disaster over her negotiations on Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union and her determination on Monday to postpone an important parliamentary vote.
In a press release Mr. Brady stated the “threshold of 15 p.c of the parliamentary get together in search of a vote of confidence within the chief of the Conservative Get together has been exceeded,” and that in accordance with the get together’s guidelines, a poll will likely be held Wednesday night in Parliament.
