The race for the post of UK PM was interesting, Indian-origin Priti Patel supported Boris Johnson

UK Political Crisis: After the resignation of Liz Truss from the post of Prime Minister of Britain, the race for the new PM has become interesting. Liz Truss defeated Rishi Sunak in a thrilling match. However, she could not hold her post for long. He resigned from the post of Prime Minister on Thursday (October 20) only after 45 days. After the resignation of Liz Truss, along with Rishi Sunak, former Prime Minister Boris Johnson is also being considered as the prime ministerial candidate.

Supporters of Rishi Sunak claimed on Saturday (October 22) that the former Indian-origin chancellor has secured the support of 100 MPs to join the list of candidates in the race to become the country’s prime minister. Sunak is in the race to replace Liz Truss as the country’s prime minister and leader of the Conservative Party.

Former Prime Minister Johnson also returned home

Meanwhile, the country’s former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who is on holiday in the Caribbean country, has also returned home with the intention of joining this race. A report claimed that there are 100 MPs in support of Boris Johnson. However, neither Sunak nor Johnson have made a formal announcement of contesting elections to become the party’s leader. So far, ‘Leader of Commons’ Penny Mordont is the only candidate who has announced to contest the election.

Boris Johnson also got along

Priti Patel, who served as Home Minister in the cabinet of former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, has supported the re-appointment of her former boss, replacing Liz Truss. Patel, an Indian-origin MP, had last kept silent, not revealing her choice between the ongoing rivalry between Conservative Party leader Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak for the post of prime minister, but Patel has now said that in the 2019 general election. Conservative Party leader Johnson got the mandate.

Priti Patel tweeted that the former Prime Minister has proved himself by taking the right big decisions. “Boris has the mandate to fulfill our election agenda. I support Johnson in his fight for leadership,” Patel tweeted.

Sunak is getting support

Former finance minister Sunak has got the support of some Tory party ministers and some MPs from different factions of the Tory party. Former Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab told the BBC: “Sage’s plan for the summer was perfect and I think it’s still the right plan.” “We can’t go back. We don’t want another episode like Partygate again. We have to take the country and the government forward,” Raab said.

Johnson’s popularity continues in the party

Indian-origin Rishi Sunak, who is the front-runner to replace Liz Truss, who resigned as prime minister in just 45 days due to a reversal of policies and a collapse in the financial markets, may face a challenge from Johnson. Johnson himself resigned as prime minister six weeks ago after several scandals and the resignation of a large number of his ministers, but his popularity in the Conservative Party remains intact. The former prime minister’s aides have indicated they support Johnson’s return to 10 Downing Street.

How much support has been received so far?

At least three cabinet ministers have openly said they would support Johnson as the new prime minister, including Commerce Minister Jacob Reismog, Defense Secretary Ben Wallace and another minister, Simon Clark. The number of supporters of Johnson has reached 46, but the number of supporters of Sunak is 100. If only one candidate comes forward, Britain will have a new prime minister by next week, but if there is a contest between two candidates, 170,000 Tory members will vote online by Friday.

Triangular match expected

So far, it looks like a triangular contest, as third-placed House of Commons leader Penny Mordaunt has also started her campaign. Penney has launched a video campaign to attract as many lawmakers as possible, and his number of supporters has grown to 21. “I think he is a deserving candidate to bring some stability and give confidence to lakhs of workers and boost business in the country,” he said.
