On Wednesday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was not finally served with the results of the investigation into the parties on Downing Street amid bans.
Senior state official Sue Gray, who conducted the investigation, is believed to have completed the drafting of her report, but the announcement by the Metropolitan Police that she will conduct her own investigation as criminal acts may arise has complicated the situation.
According to information, government legal advisers, officials of the Metropolitan Police, as well as officials of the human resources department of the public administration are examining the finding line by line for reports that could be judged to prejudge the police investigation.
A source from the Metropolitan Police seems to confirm the information speaking to the Telegraph, as he states that it would be "wise" to withhold some information from Sue Gray.
This information reinforces the opposition's concerns that the entire report may not be made public in the end.
Downing Street has said the report will be made public shortly after it is received by Prime Minister Johnson, who intends to respond immediately with a statement to the House of Commons.
The fact that today the Parliament is scheduled to dedicate most of its sitting to a debate on the anniversary of the Holocaust and that many MPs are absent on Friday returning to their constituencies, makes it very likely that the Prime Minister's statement will be made on Monday - unless of course there will be an even greater delay in the delivery of the finding.
The delay prolongs uncertainty about the political future of Boris Johnson, who, however, has begun meeting with Conservative lawmakers who have challenged him.
Some of them said that the Prime Minister listened to their concerns and expressed regret for the loose observance of the lockdown rules on Downing Street and that they are therefore willing to allow him to try to change things.
On the other hand, a Guardian article states that although the newest bunch of Tory MPs, who until now have been the most publicly critical of the Prime Minister, seem to have moderated their reactions, older MPs are increasingly expressing doubts about his suitability. Boris Johnson.
It is recalled that the dismissal of the Prime Minister requires the submission of 54 letters of no confidence by Conservative MPs to the relevant party body, the Commission 1922. This automatically triggers a vote for dismissal, resulting in a simple majority of the 359 Conservative MPs. No one knows the exact number of letters submitted at any one time, except the head of the 1922 Commission, Sir Graham Brady.
