The Run To Become UK’s Prime Minister

Recent polling indicates that Sunak is currently 32 points behind UK foreign secretary and fellow Tories member Liz Truss in the contest to become the island’s 78th premier. The Conservative Party will name its new leader, who will succeed Boris Johnson as both party leader and prime minister, on September 5. The goal, according to Rishi Sunak, is to “love bomb” the Tory membership, as he did when he was chosen to fight for Richmond in North Yorkshire as a Tory member of Parliament in 2015. Rishi Sunak claimed he is stoic about Liz Truss’s massive lead in the race for Downing Street.
