Boris Johnson, Jeremy Hunt Receive Most Votes in Tory Leadership Contest; Michael Gove Eliminated

Following Theresa May’s announcement in May that she would resign as Prime Minister, 10 leadership contenders launched bids to replace her. On 22 July, the new leader of the Conservative Party will be chosen from remaining candidates through a postal ballot of the 160,000 party members.

Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt have secured their places as the final contenders for Tory Leadership, making it through the MP votes and onto the members' ballot.

In the final vote for MPs, Boris Johnson remained the frontrunner after securing 162 votes, with Jeremy Hunt in second place with 77 votes, and Michael Gove failing to scrape into the final round with just 75 votes.
