Tory MPs who have pledged their support for Boris Johnson


Boris Johnson needs the backing of 180 Tory MPs in Monday night’s confidence vote if he is to remain Prime Minister.

To date, 85 MPs have already publicly declared their support for Mr Johnson. This includes the vast majority of his cabinet – including Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak, who had been touted as potential successors.

But some members of the Prime Minister’s own party have yet to declare their support, including a number of Cabinet members and more junior ministers.
