The Independent published this video item, entitled “Watch again: Boris Johnson faces Keir Starmer at PMQs as threat of no-confidence vote looms” – below is their description.

Boris Johnson has faced what could be his toughest session of PMQs to date, as pressure continues to mount over the Downing Street party scandal.

The prime minister could soon be facing a leadership challenge, with a number of Tory backbenchers said to be turning against him.

While the number of letters calling for a vote of no confidence submitted will remain secret, it’s suggested the threshold of 54 could be met as early as this week.

Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer capitalised on the Tory unrest to give Mr Johnson an uncomfortable afternoon.

In This Story: Vote

Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.

In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
