  According to reports, Gove was one of the first sitting cabinet ministers to express dissatisfaction with the prime minister's retention.

  Previously, the British Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Health Secretary resigned successively after losing confidence in Prime Minister Johnson, triggering a wave of resignations of government officials.

  The Prime Minister's private secretary to Parliament told Sky News that Mr Johnson was "in a good mood and will continue to fight".

  According to the British Sky News, the number of people who have offered to resign has exceeded 40.

  In June this year, Johnson experienced a vote of no confidence over the "Partygate" scandal, when 40% of Conservative MPs cast a no-confidence vote.

  The British "Guardian" reported that lawmakers are increasingly looking forward to changing the rules to allow them to hold a second vote of no confidence in the prime minister before the summer recess on July 21.
