Here's why Wealden MP can't reveal her Boris Johnson confidence vote

Wealden’s MP says she cannot reveal whether she voted to back or oust Boris Johnson.

Mr Johnson survived a vote of confidence by 211 to 148 on Monday night (June 6).

Two West Sussex MPs have previously called on Mr Johnson to resign over Partygate, but no East Sussex MPs have at this stage publicly broken ranks.

So far, only Sally-Ann Hart, Hastings and Rye MP, has admitted to backing the PM.

As Nus Ghani, Wealden MP, is vice-chair of the 1922 Committee, she helped oversee the vote as a ‘neutral adjudicator’.

She said: “I must remain as such to oversee any future votes that may or may not take place. It would therefore not be appropriate for me to comment on whether I have submitted a letter of no confidence or which way I voted.

“I recognise that Conservative MPs have voted by 211 to 148 that they have confidence in Boris Johnson as leader of the Conservative Party.”
