British PM apologizes to Parliament for violating lockdown


ISLAMABAD, April 21 (Alliance News): British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has apologized to Parliament for violating the Corona Lockdown rules, and was fined by police for violating the rules.

Boris Johnson says he was unaware that the laws he drafted during the global pandemic banned birthday celebrations, according to a report in the Dawn newspaper by Reuters.

He apologized after opposition lawmakers demanded an investigation against him, but lawmakers believe he is constantly misrepresenting parliament.

The British prime minister said he now realized he had made a mistake.

Earlier, Boris Johnson had said that he had not committed any violation while the people have a right to expect high standards.

“As soon as I received the notice, I acknowledged the pain and anger, and said that the people have a right to expect better from their prime minister,” he told parliament.

Opposition groups called for Boris Johnson to resign, accusing him of misleading parliament and saying he had told lawmakers last year that all rules had been followed in Downing Street during the epidemic. ۔

Downing Street is the prime minister’s official residence and workplace.

Labor leader Carey Sturmer called on lawmakers to remove the prime minister so that “politeness and integrity can be restored in our politics and the humiliation of everything in the country can be stopped.”

Boris Johnson’s pressure to resign from his legislators ended with the Ukraine war when he played a key role in the West’s response, with his opponents repeatedly demanding his departure, with many opponents saying now is the time. do not have.

However, former Conservative leader Mark Harper once told Boris Johnson that he needed to step down.

The speaker of the house approved the request of the opposition party to vote on whether to appear before the committee for the investigation of Boris Johnson.

According to Munster’s law, it is a crime to deliberately mislead parliament, which results in resignation.

However, the movement is unlikely to succeed because Boris Johnson has the support of several lawmakers from his Conservative party and can still hold command in Parliament, but the debate will draw fresh attention to his conduct.
