Timetable to replace Boris Johnson is set

Published

The race to enter Downing Street to become the new Tory leader is set to begin

The race to choose a new Conservative leader – and therefore the new prime minister of the United Kingdom – will start on Tuesday 12 July.

And the date this new leader will be known, and Mr Johnson will be leaving Downing Street?

That will be September 5.

DOWNING STREET

A crowded field of 11 candidates have put their hats in the ring so far.

Liz Truss, the former Foreign Secretary, was the latest to declare after she contributed an article in the UK’s Telegraph newspaper on Monday.

The outgoing prime minister – Boris Johnson – has so far refused to endorse any candidate.

“I wouldn’t want to damage anybody’s chances by offering my support.”

Tax cuts seem to be the order of the day.

Every candidate who is standing has said that tax cuts would be part of their platform in one way or another.

The justifications centre on their desires to tackle the cost of living crisis.

But Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has hit out at the Tory leadership campaign, referring to the tax cuts as “fantasy economics.”

“Over the weekend, the contenders have made more than £200bn of unfunded spending commitments. Let that sink in”

11 candidates are current running.

This includes Rishi Sunak – who was Chancellor of the Exchequer during Boris Johnson’s tenure as Prime Minister.

Various polls published across multiple UK newspapers have Rishi Sunak as the current favourite – and the final battle will be between Rishi Sunak – and whoever is left to face him.
