Prominent politicians asked him about his past behavior, motives, and some of the scandals that ended up defining much of his tenure in government.
Johnson may get some relief from the committee that sets the rules for a vote of no-confidence in the party’s leadership. The body decided to hold an internal election to select a new president before amending the rules to start a new vote of no confidence in Johnson.
A spokesman for Johnson said Johnson was confident he could win an impeachment.
Upon arriving in Parliament, he answered questions about whether he would resign with the words: “No, no, no.” “The duty of the prime minister in difficult circumstances, when you are given huge tasks, is to keep moving forward, and that is what I will do,” he said.
Johnson attempted to reassert his authority by quickly appointing Nadim Zahawi to the position of finance minister.
Al-Zahaki is a rising star in the Conservative Party. He is credited with the success of the Covid-19 vaccination programme.
The latest crisis in the British government began on Tuesday, when two senior ministers, Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid, resigned from their posts.
They resigned because they were unhappy with Johnson’s handling of a scandal involving Conservative MP Chris Pincher, who is accused of molesting two men at a private club in London.
Johnson knew Pincher had been accused of harassment, but he still nominated him for an important position in Parliament – that of Deputy Prime Minister.
This is not the first crisis Johnson has faced within his own party. Months ago, he had to apologize for that Parties were held at the home of the Prime Minister during the period of isolation due to Covid-19.
