Sir Graham Brady has announced that the threshold of 15% of the parliamentary Conservative Party seeking a vote of confidence in Prime Minister, Theresa May has been exceeded and a vote in her leadership will take place.

There will now be a private ballot of Conservative MPs tonight in the House of Commons from 18:00 – 20:00. 

Speaking outside Downing Street this morning, the Prime Minister was defiant and said that she “will contest that vote with everything I have got” and that she “stands ready to finish the job.” 

It is expected that Theresa May will win the challenge and continue as Prime Minister, meaning she would not be able to challenged for at least a year. If Mrs May loses, then a leadership contest will ensue, or in extraordinary circumstances, a caretaker leader will be appointed.
