Boris Johnson’s apartment refurbishment broke election law, watchdog rules

blank

The Conservatives broke election law by controversially funding the refurbishment of Boris Johnson’s flat, the Electoral Commission has ruled.

“Our investigation into the Conservative Party has found that the laws surrounding the reporting and recording of contributions have not been followed,” announced Louise Edwards, director of regulation. about a £17,800 fine.

The ruling puts charges of depravity against the prime minister at the center, as he is accused of misleading the public about last year’s No 10 Christmas parties.

For months, Mr Johnson and other ministers refused to confirm that the Tory party, and then a major donor, had initially funded the lavish redecoration.

An investigation has been conducted into whether the law was broken by not correctly declaring that a gift or loan was received for the works.
