Boris Johnson was on holiday, but returned due to political instability. Late on Sunday night, he claimed that he has the support of 102 MPs, but less than Rishi Sunak. He said that I have a lot to give, but this is not the right time. About 150 MPs openly support Rishi Sunak, while only 60 MPs support Boris. Prime Minister Liz Truss was criticized for her poor economy, after which she was forced to resign.
Rishi is set to become the Prime Minister!
According to the rules, if a candidate gets the support of 100 MPs of the Conservative Party, he will be nominated for the post of Prime Minister on Monday. If two candidates get the support of 100 MPs, then there will be competition between them in the party. Penny Mordont’s name is also running in the Prime Minister’s race. Some of Johnson’s supporters may support Penny after Johnson’s announcement. But some of Johnson’s supporters immediately sided with Sage. A source close to Penny’s campaign said she would be in the running for prime minister.
