Tory MPs garner enough support to try vote May out
British Prime Minister Theresa May is facing a vote of no confidence by her own Conservative Party. May held a press briefing earlier on Wednesday saying she will contest the vote.
EWN UK correspondent Gavin Grey says there have been talks arguing for the vote. However, May keeps surviving.
He says the party argues it has finally gathered enough support for the no-confidence vote from backbenchers.
They needed to pass the threshold of 48 Conservative MPs writing in and saying we have no confidence. And finally they have achieved that and the vote is on.Gavin Grey, EWN UK correspondent
Grey adds that the vote will begin in seven hours and it consists of a secret ballot where MPs will have two hours to cast their votes with the results being given an hour later.
