johnson's popularity to plummet. the you case royal jubilee celebrations over. but boris johnson's political hangover has just begun. the british leader is facing a fight for his political survival. more than 15 percent of conservative in peace have withdrawn this support for the prime minister. enough to trigger a party leadership challenge. i notified the prime minister yesterday that the threshold had been reached and we agreed the time table for confidence i'd say vice rumors of a possible challenge have been swirling for months. driven by a series of scandals. late last year, revelations emerged that johnson and his staff had held a number of parties in breach of the you cage code 19 lockdown laws. i'm
8:03 pm
and is following 2 separate investigations. johnson became the 1st serving prime minister to be fined for breaking the law. for many conservative m. p. 's, the so called party gate scandal was a step too far. now was very clear in january that the prime she should have resigned in january. it was clear that party gate was going to grow and grub and run and run. while on the streets of london, many expressed a lack of trust in the embattled prime minister. i just did lie after lie after lie off lie off to cover up the cover of the chain rule. he's a wife on. i hope he gets no confidence because i've got my confidence in him. conservative and peace, who have come out in support have tried to focus on the bigger picture or economy opened up faster than other compar recorded, particularly, or the vaccine roll out. he has shown himself to be a good, strong leader who just the big decisions, right. and he has a mandate from the british people to range about the opposition leader says that
8:04 pm
even if johnson survives the vote and said his hold over, the party has already been dramatically weakened as par, i think history tells us that this is the beginning of the end, if you look at the previous examples of no confidence folks, even when conservative prime minister survived that he might survive it tonight. the damage is already done with m. p. 's due to cast their ballots in secret. the result of the vote and of johnson's political future is far from certain decisive moments for the british prime minister dw correspondence. charlotte shall some fil is outside parliament. so charlotte, what's happening right now as we speak in the building, just behind me, members of parliament from the prime minister's own party, a deciding his future as leader. now it is a secret ballot that is a taking place. so we may never know whether those who are voting now while voting
8:05 pm
in the same a direction is what they're saying. c in public, on the airwaves, we have seen a series of members of the prime ministers, government coming out in support saying they are very confident that he will win. will know the answer to that in a couple of hours time. we know that members appointment have roughly an hour left to cost though secret ballots. why do some members of his party want to see him gone? well, this has been brewing for some time. there's been a huge amount of discontent in the country in the wake of the party gates scandal, which you reference there in that report as those of gatherings that were held. a wall lockdown, or covey restrictions wire in place as feeling among the public that those were making the rules one following the rules themselves. that is really resonated harris, his story that keeps dragging on and on. and there is a feeling that many in the prime minister's party don't want to keep defending him
8:06 pm
in the face. all these are all this scandal we heard in that report that, that so the prime minister over the queen's jubilee celebrations this weekend with food. i think his supporters would say he did receive some cheers as well, but it's possible that that's really been a nail in the coffins for some of those who was still wavering on the prime minister's futures. seeing the public discontent perhaps as well, being out over the weekend speaking to voters really did solidify for them that this a discontent does remain in the question is for many is the prime minister still an election when a he brought a huge majority with the conservative party in the last election. it may be that some starting to wonder whether he is the man that can lead them to a victory next time around. um, if mr. johnson loses this confidence vote. what does that mean for the country?
8:07 pm
i think at this stage, the consensus seems to be leaning towards the prime minister winning this confidence vital though of course it is too soon to say that the question will be by what margin and whether or not he can continue to govern with that margin. if he loses the vote, however he or that will trigger a leadership battle. he won't be able to run in it. there'll be a protracted battle for the next leader of the party and he will be aston is prime minister final thought from you charlotte, how damaging has this all been for the conservative party and for the prime minister thing very damaging. i think that explains why this vote is happening now. if indeed he does, when i think it could be still damaging, going forward technically under the rules at the moment. if he wins that won't. he can't face another confidence vote within a year. there are already rumblings though that those rules could be changed so he
8:08 pm
is facing. he and the conservative party are facing a challenging time ahead. sharla chilson pill reporting from london. thank you very much, charlotte. when i turn our attention now to ukraine were present, voluntary zalinski has visited troops holding off russian forces in eastern ukraine is only the 2nd time their presence. lensky has been seen outside keith since the war began. he toward several towns close to the front line and the dumbass region were intense battles are being fought. a village near the front line and don bus after russian missile strike. an elderly woman was killed the latest victim in a war that has lost it over a 100 days to, to effect misery on the people of crime. who cookie jo, how am i supposed to feel or my, the little peacefully normally what the street was peaceful. if nothing here,
