How does the Conservative party leadership election work, and what is the role of the 1922 committee?
To challenge a leader, 15% of Conservative MPs need to write letters demanding a confidence votes. The letters go to the chairman of the party's backbench group, known as the 1922 committee. As of 2018 there are 315 Conservative MPs so it needs 48 letters. If there are the requisite number, there is a leadership election of all Conservative MPs. If the sitting leader wins, he or she remains in office and cannot be challenged for another 12 months. If he or she loses, they must resign and may not stand in a subsequent leadership election.
