Rishi Sunak to be next UK PM

Published

on

Rishi Sunak will be the UK’s next prime minister after Penny Mordaunt dropped out of the Tory leadership race in the final minutes before nominations closed.

Sunak will succeed Liz Truss seven weeks after she defeated him in the previous Tory contest.

The ex-chancellor gained the support of well over half of Tory MPs, with Mordaunt struggling to reach the threshold of 100 MPs to get on the ballot.

He will become the UK’s first British Asian PM and at 42, the youngest in more than a century.

Labour have reiterated their call for a general election, as have the Scottish National Party and the Liberal Democrats.
