Boris Johnson wins no-confidence vote despite unexpectedly large rebellion

Baku, June 7, AZERTAC

The prime minister won the support of 211 MPs but 41% of his party voted to get rid of him, with many citing his lack of repentance over the Partygate scandal and the public’s loss of trust in his leadership.
