- Tory councilors have triggered an emergency party meeting to force Theresa May to quit
- 40 percent of May’s councilors are ready to vote for Nigel Farage in European poll
- ConservativeHome’s website reveals 8 out of 10 councilors want May to quit
Tory councilors have successfully triggered an emergency party meeting for a no-confidence vote in a bid to unseat Theresa May, the Prime Minister due to her inability to secure Britain’s exit (Brexit) from the European Union; 70 percent of Tory MPs have also voted that they want her to resign, reports Express.co.uk on April 22.
Party’s National Convention to Hold a Meeting
Per the report, the party’s national convention will be holding an emergency meeting in at least a month, and its aim is to force Theresa May to quit due to her failure to secure a Brexit as earlier promised on May 29.
The meeting was decided upon on April 21 after the required threshold needed to schedule it was reached and in this case, at least 65 constituency association chairmen are backing the petition.
According to them, May’s “spectacular failure to deliver” a Brexit is a farce and if she is unable to do her job, then there is a need for a replacement. It is, therefore, believed that the results of the confidence vote will not be in favor of the Prime Minister.
More Pressure is Mounted on Theresa May within 12 Months
While this will be the second time Theresa May will be facing a confidence vote after the last one in December, more pressure is being mounted within a 12 month period even as she prepares for local and European elections next month.
For instance, a poll of 781 councilors is not also to her advantage since the result reveals that 43 percent of councilors want her to go immediately, three quarter want her to resign, while 40 percent are ready to vote for Nigel Farage’s rival Brexit Party at the European poll.
Nonetheless, Nigel Farage is the next second favorite person to replace her and was only four points short at a 15 percent vote in comparison to Boris Johnson who is the most favorite to replace the prime minister judging from the 19 percent vote garnered during the survey.
ConservativeHome’s Website Also Reveals MPs Stance on May Quitting
The ConservativeHome website also revealed that nearly 8 out of 10 councilors want Mrs. May to resign and it is a slight increment from the 7 out of 10 votes that had previously cast their vote last month.
Paul Goodman, a former Tory MP and the website’s editor who made comments said the recent postponement of the Brexit and the talks with Jeremy Corbyn had hugely contributed to the rating of only 19 percent of councilors backing Mrs. May to stay.
Reportedly, Sir Graham Brady, chairman of the backbench 1922 Committee is ready to notify the prime minister that she will have to resign in June since 70 percent of Tory MPs have decided that she needs to quit.
In a similar event, Blockchain Reporter on April 18 informed that the delay of the Brexit by the European Union is in a bid to avert the risks of the British leaving immediately and members of parliament were of the opinion that it could affect the economy of both regions.
The Brexit, on the other hand, was postponed to October 31 and as such, Britain will have to partake in the European Union election scheduled for May 23rd and elect 73 MEPs to occupy positions if it has not left before that day.
