Lightbulb The Conservative Party New Leader race ELIZABETH TRUSS WINS

Thread to discuss the runners and riders and eventual winner





What happens now he has stepped down?

There will now be a leadership contest to replace Mr Johnson as the leader of the Conservative Party and as the Prime Minister.

The PM’s remarks suggest that, like his predecessors Theresa May and David Cameron, he will stay in post while the party chooses its new supremo.

Tory leadership battles typically take two months to complete and take place across two rounds.

Firstly, a longlist of MPs is drawn up by Tory party chiefs, with only those who had secured the support of at least eight of their colleagues making the final cut.

They then enter two gruelling selection rounds, with the first seeing all Tory MPs vote in three successive rounds to whittle the candidates down to a final two.

Hopefuls need to earn the backing of at least 5 per cent of the parliamentary party, or 18 MPs, to get through the first stage and 10 per cent, equating to 36 MPs, to pass the second.

It will then be up to the 200,000-strong membership of the party to choose between the remaining pair following several weeks of heavy campaigning and hustings debates.

---------------------------------------

The Attorney General Suella Braveman has already announced her intention to run, and is expected to be followed by a large number of the PM’s top team.


Nadhim Zahawi, the former chancellor Rishi Sunak, the former health secretary Sajid Javid and the Defence Secretary Ben Wallace are among the Cabinet favourites.

Penny Mordaunt, a trade minister, is also tipped to run - as are backbenchers Tom Tugendhat, Steve Baker and Jeremy Hunt.

If 1 candidate is miles ahead in the mp voting, then the whole process can be shrunk down to a couple of weeks, i think they will be tweaking the rules to make that a probable outcome

Although would Nadhim be the first immigrant to take the role if elected? I know he came from Iraq as a teen

Mr Tugendhat is regarded as one of the leading lights of the so-called “moderate” and One Nation wing of the party. He holds the Foreign Office to account as chairman of the cross-party House of Commons foreign affairs committee.

He has been strongly critical of Mr Johnson throughout his premiership. In an email to constituents on May 30, he accused him of “a lack of respect it showed for the British people or the Queen”.

Mr Tugendhat did not explicitly say whether or not he had sent a letter of no confidence to Sir Graham Brady, instead writing: “I have made my position clear to those who need to hear it.”

This party has still got a long way to go before it can catch Birmingham City up on how many people you can sack.

It's the one thing that club is actually really good at.

But I'm gonna guess that Rishi Sunak will try to stand?
