A majority of the British public is unimpressed with Zahawi’s conduct over his tax issues and believes that he should step down from his role as Conservative party chairman.
A recent YouGov poll has revealed that the majority of the British public believes that former Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi should resign from his role as Conservative party chairman.
51% of those polled expressed the opinion that he should resign, while only 12% believe that he should remain in his role.
The result of this poll is unsurprising, given the recent controversy surrounding Zahawi’s tax issues. This has led to widespread criticism of his actions and calls for his resignation.
Nadhim Zahawi was reportedly put forward for the recent New Year’s Honours list, however, his application was rejected due to concerns surrounding his tax affairs.
