RISHI Sunak rejected calls to fire Nadhim Zahawi today, amid an ethics probe into the embattled Tory Chair's tax affairs.
At PMQs Mr Sunak insisted it's right that an independent advisor examines the case before decisions about Mr Zahawi's political future are made.
The PM said: "I believe in proper due process, that's why I appointed an independent advisor.
"I obviously can't prejudge the outcome of that, but it is right. It is right that we fully investigate this matter and establish all of the facts."
Mr Zahawi is facing calls from Labour and even some of his own Conservative colleagues to stand down.
The millionaire paid the taxman a settlement of around £4.8 million including a 30 per cent penalty of £1 million while serving as Chancellor following a dispute.
