Boris Johnson receives the final report on the

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson received this Wednesday the long-awaited independent report on the so-called "Partygate" scandal, the parties at the Downing Street residence during the pandemic, the content of which may be crucial for the political future of the conservative leader.

According to official sources, the Chief Executive already has in his hands the document made by the official Sue Gray, before it is made public, as the Government had promised.

The report is expected to be highly critical of activities at the Downing Street official residence when strong restrictive measures were in place to contain covid-19, after media revealed that several parties were held in 2020 and 2021 and that the Prime Minister participated in them.

The Prime Minister and the Minister of Economy, Rishi Sunak, have already been fined for taking part in these social events, but this crisis has deepened in recent days when some photos came to light in which Johnson can be seen with a cup in hand. According to the media, Sue Gray's report contains 37 pages and nine photographs.

Johnson is scheduled to make a statement to the House of Commons at around 1130 GMT, at the end of the weekly prime minister's question session in the lower house.

The Labor opposition has already called for the resignation of the Head of Government over this scandal, especially if it is confirmed that Johnson deliberately misled Parliament about these parties.
