Who’s replacing Liz Truss?

Moreover, the name of the new Prime Minister is to be announced by Friday 28 October. The party wants to avoid a repeat of the 55-day race in which Truss defeated Rishi Sunak. During the campaign, the two fought fiercely, which did not help the Tories in the polls. – I think we are very aware that it is in the national interest to solve this problem clearly and quickly, said Graham Brady, Chairman of the Conservative Party. Furthermore, he announced that he would apply for the office of Prime Minister himself.

However, there is no specific candidate for the post. Several politicians have agreed to take office. Named exchanges include Rishi Sunak, former Chancellor of the Exchequer and current Member of Parliament, Speaker of the House of Commons Penny Mordaunt, current Chancellor of the Exchequer Jeremy Hunt and Secretary of Defense Ben Wallace. British media are also reporting on the candidacy of former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who resigned as Prime Minister only three months ago in a scandalous atmosphere. According to the results, Johnson is checking to see if he can get back into his position. Bookmakers on the islands also see him as a favourite.
