Second Johnson ministry

The second Johnson ministry began on 16 December 2019, three days after Boris Johnson's audience with Queen Elizabeth II where she invited him to form a new administration following the 2019 general election, in which the Conservative Party was returned to power with a majority of 80 seats in the House of Commons. Initially the ministers were largely identical to those at the end of the first Johnson ministry, but changed significantly in cabinet reshuffles in February 2020 and September 2021.

PredecessorFirst Johnson ministry

In July 2022, following a government crisis as a result of several resignations from his government, Johnson resigned as leader of the Conservative Party. Johnson pledged to remain as Prime Minister and lead a 'caretaker' government until a new Conservative Party leader had been elected. The election results are due by 5 September 2022, and the new leader is expected to become Prime Minister and form a new government.[2]

HistoryEdit

2019 to 2020Edit

The Conservative minority first Johnson ministry could not implement its legislative programme due to a political impasse over Brexit. While the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 requires a two-thirds majority vote in parliament to trigger an election, Johnson bypassed this requirement by passing the Early Parliamentary General Election Act 2019. In the resulting election, held on 12 December 2019, Johnson's Conservatives won a majority of eighty seats, the largest for a government led by a Conservative prime minister since Margaret Thatcher in 1987.[3]

Initially the ministers were largely identical to those at the end of the first Johnson ministry, excepting the Secretary of State for Wales, in which position Simon Hart replaced Alun Cairns. Nicky Morgan, who stood down at the general election, and Zac Goldsmith, who lost his seat, were made life peers to allow them to remain in the government.

Johnson reshuffled his cabinet on 13 February 2020:[4] Sajid Javid, Julian Smith, Esther McVey, Geoffrey Cox, Andrea Leadsom, Theresa Villiers and Chris Skidmore all left the government.[5]

Andrew Sabisky worked as a political adviser in Johnson's office for a short time in February. Sabisky, a speaker at the secretly held London Conference on Intelligence at UCL in 2015,[6] believed that there were significant differences in average intelligence between different races, and supported enforced contraception.[7] This caused concern among politicians of all parties in the UK Parliament only a few days after Sabisky's appointment.[8] He resigned from his advisory role on 17 February 2020.[9]

2021 to presentEdit

The 2021 State Opening of Parliament took place on 11 May 2021.[10] Johnson conducted a cabinet reshuffle on 15 September 2021.[11] The 2022 State Opening of Parliament took place on 10 May 2022.[12] Johnson conducted another cabinet reshuffle on 7 July 2022.[13]

Confidence vote and government crisisEdit

On 6 June 2022, Boris Johnson faced a vote of confidence in his ministry.[14] He won the vote, with 211 in favour of his premiership and 148 against.[15] Johnson was politically weakened.[15]

In July 2022, several ministers resigned from the government in response to the handling of the Chris Pincher scandal, including cabinet ministers Sajid Javid, Rishi Sunak and Simon Hart.[16] Michael Gove was sacked for disloyalty.[17]

Johnson’s resignationEdit

Following the resignations Johnson announced, on 7 July 2022, his decision to step down as Conservative Party leader.[18] He will stay on as Prime Minister until later in 2022, when a Conservative Party leadership election will be held.[19]
