As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by CNBC:
U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May has won a crucial vote of confidence in her leadership on Wednesday evening.
May needed a simple majority (at least 158 out of 315 Conservative MPs) to win the confidence vote. Winning this vote means her leadership cannot be challenged for another year now.
The article goes on to state the following:
The vote was announced Wednesday after 48 Conservative members of parliament (MPs) submitted letters of no-confidence in May’s leadership to the chairman of a prominent group of Conservative backbench MPs called the ‘1922 Committee.’
Under party rules, if 48 Conservative MPs (15 percent of the parliamentary party) submit letters of no-confidence in the party leader to the chair of the 1922 Committee, a confidence vote must be held.
Winning on Wednesday is essentially a brief reprieve for May and she has an uphill battle to convince not only her own party MPs, but those among the opposition, to back the Brexit deal she has struck with Europe.
