Boris Johnson Joins Race To Be UK’s Prime Minister Again

Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak on Friday were leading the potential contenders to replace British Prime Minister Liz Truss with candidates canvassing support to become Conservative Party leader in a fast-tracked contest.

After Truss quit on Thursday, ending her six weeks in power, those who want to replace her were trying to find the 100 votes from Conservative lawmakers needed to run in a contest that the party hoped would reset its ailing fortunes.

With the Conservatives all but facing a wipeout in the next national election, according to opinion polls, the race is on to become the fifth British premiere in six years.

The winner would be announced on either Monday or Friday next week.

In what would be an extraordinary comeback, Johnson, who was ousted by lawmakers just over three months ago, was running high up the ranks alongside Sunak to be crowned the next prime minister.

“Boris Johnson can win the next general election,” he said.
