Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to step down from leadership race to succeed Liz Truss

Johnson previously enjoyed a high level of popularity during the last months of his reign until he lost credibility. ReutersLONDON — Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will not enter the contest to replace outgoing leader Reuters Truss. Officially scheduled to enter the contest over the past few days, Johnson said in a late statement on Sunday, “It’s simply not right. Time.” He added that he “removed a very high hurdle of 102 nominations” to get into the second half of the contest. About 60 lawmakers publicly supported the former prime minister, but there was a question mark as to exactly how many nominations he received. Johnson mentioned in a statement two rivals officially competing in the primary, Rishi Sunak and Penny Mordaunt.” Sadly, I couldn’t find a way to do this,” Johnson said. Sunak’s Favorite Former Treasury Secretary Sunak is the hottest to become the next British leader with around 140 nominations so far. On Saturday, Johnson returned from vacation in the Caribbean in a media frenzy that almost threw his hat into the ring. Even though many Conservative lawmakers are steadfastly opposed to a comeback, Johnson is still believed to be popular with the broader Conservative grassroots. Nadine Dorries, a former culture minister and a close aide to Johnson, tweeted on Thursday that she was the only member of the House of Representatives “to be commissioned by party members and the British public” to win the 2019 general election. Elections with the Conservatives – and the fact that you can go back to Downing Street on Friday. But over the past few days I’ve come to the conclusion that, sadly, this is simply not the right thing to do. You can. “Without the United Party in Congress, we cannot govern effectively,” Johnson said in his Sunday statement. Johnson previously enjoyed high popularity until he lost his credibility in the final months of his tenure amid political scandals over a Covid-19 rule violation and his link. To the infamous Congressman Chris Fincher. In his farewell speech, he hinted at a future return to office by saying “Hasta la vista, baby” or “see you later”. “Mini Budget” ends a short 44-day term engulfed in chaos, economic turmoil and weeks of political infighting. This time, however, the process quickly moved into the space of a week in order for the party to restore confidence and reassure the market. With 357 party leaders, the threshold is particularly high given that each party can only vote for one candidate. Therefore, the number of possible competitors is limited to three. When a candidate gets 100 votes, he automatically wins the primary and becomes the next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. If two or more candidates reach 100 nominations, the contest will be conducted by ballots on Monday afternoons and evenings. If the process is extended beyond Monday, the roughly 200,000 Conservative Party members representing 0.3% of the UK’s population will have until Friday to vote. Vote for your preferred candidate in the 11 a.m. online poll.
