Boris Johnson Updates: Following the spectacular cabinet revolt that led to the resignation of the prime minister as Tory leader, Tory MPs are vying for the job of next Tory leader.

Tom Tugendhat, along with Steve Baker and attorney general Suella Braverman, is the third MP to proclaim his interest in running for leadership.

Until a replacement is chosen by the fall, Mr. Johnson plans to stay in his position as prime minister. He should resign immediately, according to opposition parties and several Tories, although that seems improbable just now.

In order to replace the ministers who resigned in protest of his leadership, Mr. Johnson appointed a new lineup of the cabinet. He also promised to refrain from asking them to make any significant policy decisions until a new leader is in place.

Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, treasurer of the 1922 Committee of backbench Tory MPs, said that in a “ideal scenario,” deputy prime minister Dominic Raab would take over for a few weeks, but “that ship has sailed.”
“We now have to accept that Boris Johnson will serve as prime minister until a replacement can be chosen,” continued Sir Geoffrey.


A timeframe for the Tory leadership race is expected to be unveiled next week, and the new prime minister is expected to take office by September.
Although this would need significant support from Conservatives to be successful, the Labour Party has committed to use a vote of no confidence to attempt and immediately remove the prime minister.
The idea that he’s trying to hang on for the foreseeable future, according to Labour’s deputy leader Angela Rayner, is wholly unacceptable, she told the BBC.

The chairman of the Commons foreign affairs committee, Mr. Tugendhat, declared his intention to run for prime minister in an essay that appeared in the Daily Telegraph on Friday. He pledged to lower taxes and give the administration “fresh energy and ideas.”
“I formerly served in the military and am currently serving in parliament. I now aspire to return to the call as prime minister “said the former soldier and vocal opponent of Mr. Johnson.

In contrast to Mr. Baker, a former Brexit minister, who said he was “seriously” considering running, Attorney General Ms. Braverman has already announced her desire to run.
Sajid Javid, the former minister of health, and Grant Shapps, the former secretary of transportation and all of whom revolted against Mr. Johnson, are reportedly considering running as well.
Others who have been rumoured to run include former Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, former Chancellor Rishi Sunak, Defense Secretary Ben Wallace, and Foreign Secretary Liz Truss.
More announcements are expected in the coming days, but some prominent Tories, such as former Levelling Up Secretary Michael Gove, Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab, and former Health Secretary Matt Hancock, have already stated they will not be taking part.
You might not be surprised to learn that Westminster is a postcode that doesn’t lack ambition.
In the coming weeks, the would-be candidates will compete for the support of Conservative MPs, and if two remain at the end of that process, Conservative Party members will have the last decision during the summer.

Boris Johnson

On our behalf, between 100,000 and 200,000 people will be tasked with choosing the next leader of our country.
The following prime minister will undoubtedly have a very different personality than Boris Johnson. All the applicants will strive to exhibit attributes such as ooze integrity and cherish truth given the circumstances and reasons for his downfall.

Beyond that, though, there will be an interesting discussion about what being a Conservative in 2022 entails.The political environment will immediately change when a new leader takes office.
There are now concerns regarding the government’s ability to function after around 60 Conservative MPs resigned from top and junior positions in recent days.
Speaking to his freshly chosen cabinet on Thursday, Mr. Johnson pledged not to make any “major adjustments of direction” while holding down the top job for the foreseeable future.
