British Prime Minister Boris Johnson survives a no-confidence vote that might thrown him out of office

Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister, survived a no-confidence vote on Monday that might have thrown him out of office, as public dissatisfaction with his reign deepens amid a fight for his political survival. 

Meanwhile, Conservative members of parliament vote 211-148 in favor of letting Johnson stay in power. Tory Party official Graham Brady said he had received letters calling for a no-confidence vote. 

The move against Johnson, who has led Britain out of the EU, comes as his government faces intense pressure to address increasing energy and food prices. 

Hours later, party lawmakers lined up by the dozen in a corridor at Parliament to cast their ballots in a wood-paneled room, handing over their phones as they entered to ensure secrecy.

The party's parliamentary majority was less than that of former Prime Minister Theresa May, who was forced to resign after losing a similar vote in December 2018. 

The discontent against Johnson had been building for months and erupted following the 10-day parliamentary break that included a long weekend of celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee.
