British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, will on Wednesday, face parliament in his first appearance before lawmakers since escaping a damaging no-confidence vote from his own Conservative Members of Parliament.
Critics, however, have warned the political crisis is not over for the prime minister after more than 40 percent of his own Members of Parliament voted against him in Monday’s no-confidence vote.
Johnson, who called the 211-148 vote a convincing result, has vowed to correct questions about his leadership and the “Partygate” controversy over lockdown-breaking events at Downing Street.
The prime minister’s team has tried to regain the offensive by pointing to a set-piece speech expected in the coming days on new economic support measures, as Britons struggle with a cost-of-living crisis.
