- Rishi Sunak will serve as the leader of Great Britain’s Conservative (Tory) Party and England’s next prime minister, according to reports that broke Monday morning.
- Sunak, who many speculated would replace Boris Johnson in the wake of his July resignation, but was edged out by fellow MP Elizabeth Truss, assumed the lead after Johnson announced he was bowing out Sunday night in what some believed could be a comeback for the former prime minister.
- He also edged his last remaining opponent, former defense minister Penny Mordaunt by achieving the required 100 supporters within the Tory Party by London’s noon deadline.
