#UK: PM Johnson Survives Confidence Vote

[world politics news]

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said his Government can now “move on” following a “convincing” and “decisive” result in a Monday vote of confidence among conservative members of parliament.

He told broadcasters: “I think this is a very good result for politics and for the country.”

Johnson added that it was “a convincing result, a decisive result, and what it means is that as a Government we can move on and focus on the stuff that I think really matters to people."

The vote was 211 stating they had confidence in Johnson's leadership, with  148 saying they did not.

Had Johnson lost the confidence of his party, he would likely have stepped down as prime minister and head of the party, facilitating new elections.
