Britain’s Tories finish voting for their leader
Voting closed in the Conservative Party leadership election on Friday, and Liz Truss is widely expected to be named the winner next week and succeed Boris Johnson as the UK’s next prime minister.
Online and mail-in polls of Tory members closed at 5 p.m. (4 p.m. GMT), after a two-month contest that saw the final two candidates tour the country taking part in roundups and televised debates.
The result of the run-off between Foreign Secretary Truss and former finance minister Rishi Sunak will be announced at 12.30pm on Monday, before the outgoing Johnson formally tenders his resignation to Queen Elizabeth II the following day.
Voting by the Conservative party’s roughly 200,000 members began in early August, a month after Johnson announced his resignation following a series of scandals and resignations from his government.
