UK’s Leadership Contest Officially Begins
Right now, there are whopping 10 lead candidates gunning for Theresa May’s title at Downing Street.
Nominations for the position took place on Monday, requiring support from 313 Tory MPs to proceed. The biggest party battle to choose the next Conservative Prime Minister took center stage last Friday when the UK PM officially resigned after giving in to political pressures over her Brexit failure.
The nominated Tory MPs will go through the first vote on June 13th (first ballot). Then, the second vote will be on June 18th (second ballot,) with the 19th and 20th of June kept for further ballots if required.
Finally, from June 22nd onwards, the two remaining candidates will battle until the party’s 160,000 members decide who of the two is going to be eliminated on the July 22nd vote.
