LONDON — Conservative MPs begin casting their ballots in a no-confidence vote in British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, which could result in his immediate removal as party leader and signal the end of his time in power.

Johnson, fighting for his political survival following the “Partygate” scandal, requires a majority of his 359 Tory MPs to back him to remain in office, with a result expected around an hour after voting ends at 8 p.m. local time.
