Rishi Sunak looked set to become Britain's next prime minister after Boris Johnson withdrew from the contest on Sunday, saying that although he had enough support to make the final ballot he realised the country and the Conservative Party needed unity.
 

Johnson had raced home from a holiday in the Caribbean to try and secure the backing of 100 lawmakers to enter Monday's contest to replace Liz Truss, the woman who succeeded him in September after he was forced to quit over a string of scandals.
 

He said he had secured the backing of 102 lawmakers and could have been "back in Downing Street", but that he had failed to persuade either Sunak, or the other contender Penny Mordaunt, to come together "in the national interest".
 

The former prime minister had secured the public backing of just under 60 Conservative lawmakers by Sunday, well under half of the nearly 150 endorsements Sunak had received.
 

英国前财政大臣苏纳克将接替特拉斯成为英国新首相

英国前财政大臣苏纳克发推文表示,他将接替特拉斯成为英国下一任首相。
 

“英国是一个伟大的国家,但正面临深刻的经济危机”,苏纳克在推文中说,“这就是我为什么要站在保守党党首和你们的下一任首相的位置上”。
 

据多家英媒早些时候报道,被视为苏纳克最大竞争者的英国前首相约翰逊当地时间23日宣布退出竞选。
