100 MPs needed for candidature
Conservative Party leaders who want to replace Liz Truss will have to get the support of at least 100 lawmakers by Monday. Only after getting the support of so many MPs can any leader stand in the race for Conservative Party leadership to become Prime Minister. The party hopes that this time he will get a permanent leader, who will also lead the party in the upcoming elections. The latest opinion poll predicts that the Conservative Party will face a major defeat if elections are held in Britain today. In fact, the party is facing a leadership crisis for the last six years. This is the fifth time that the Conservative Party leader is being elected. Liz Truss said at the time of her resignation that she was leaving the post due to respect for public opinion and not fulfilling the promises made to her.

Will Boris Johnson return?
Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is being projected as the opposition candidate against Rishi Sunak. However, Boris Johnson has not yet given any official response on contesting the election. In the last term, Boris Johnson had to resign over several issues including the partygate episode, the appointment of a leader facing serious charges as a whip. Then only the leaders of the Conservative Party stood against Boris Johnson. Rishi Sunak himself, who was included in his cabinet as the Finance Minister, had resigned. After this, in the upcoming leadership election, Boris Johnson openly opposed Rishi Sunak. He also appealed to his fellow members not to vote for Rishi Sunak.
