Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister, survived a no-confidence vote on 6th JUne, 2022
Johnson received the support of 211 Conservative members out of 359, which is more than the simple majority required to stay in office
Johnson called it a "convincing" win and said the party should now "come together."
Johnson's winning margin is less than that secured by his predecessor Theresa May in a similar vote in December 2018.
Since taking the helm in 2019, Johnson has led Britain out of the European Union and through a pandemic, both of which have shaken the U.K. socially and economically.
The vote comes as Johnson's government is under intense pressure to ease the pain of skyrocketing energy and food bills.
Conservative Party official Graham Brady announced that he had received letters calling for a no-confidence vote from at least 54 Tory legislators, enough to trigger the measure under party rules.
