The race is on to become the next prime minister of the UK following Liz Truss’s resignation on Thursday after just 44 days in office.

So far, only one candidate has announced their intention to run for the keys to Number 10 and to take over the Tory Party – Leader of the Commons Penny Mordaunt.

But former chancellor Rishi Sunak and ex-PM Boris Johnson are rumored to be considering joining the contest.

The candidates will need to secure the backing of at least 100 Tory MPs to get onto the ballot, so we are keeping a list of those publicly endorsing their choice for Downing Street.

You can keep up to date with the nominations below.
