London, 13 Feb (EFE).- Northern Ireland Minister Brandon Lewis today assured that British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, “will fight and win” the next general election, despite having to answer a police questionnaire regarding Scotland Yard investigation to a Downing Street party and public offices during the lockdown.
This was stated by Lewis to British television channel Sky, where he added that the Tory leader – in one of his most fragile political moments due to receiving constant and increasing calls to resign – had “more than 100%” of “loyalty”. absolutely.” ” .
“Investigations (regarding the social activities of Government members during the pandemic) are the business of the police (…). They must be able to carry out their duties independently, independently”, commented the politician.
Regarding Boris Johnson, who will travel to Scotland and Northern England for work this week, Lewis stressed that “he’s really focused on his job, and he’s doing it for England”.
“I think this is a prime minister who did a lot for our country, and who took important decisions right. I think he will fight and win in the next general election,” he said.
For its part, The Times pointed out that even if Johnson is fined by Scotland Yard – if they find he violated anticovid rules – he will not resign, which could lead Tory lawmakers to impose a vote of confidence in his leadership.
So far, fifteen Conservative MPs have publicly called for the resignation of the “prime minister”, although it is believed that many more have written privately to the chairman of the 1922 Committee, Graham Brady, requesting that such a vote be held.
Conservative lawmakers can file a no-confidence motion against Johnson’s leadership if the 54-member parliamentary group requests it in writing.
