After a month of hustings, the race to replace Theresa May as leader of the Conservative Party has almost reached its climax. Boris Johnson or Jeremy Hunt will be named as the new UK Prime Minister this Tuesday 23rd July.
On 6 July, voting opened up to the Conservative Party's 160,000 members, who have chosen the winner. The final deadline for party members to vote was the week ending today, Sunday 21 July.
The candidate achieving more than 50 per cent of the vote among Party members will be declared Leader of the Party. The winner, and new Prime Minister, is expected to be announced on July 23. The following day, July 24, Theresa May will speak at her final Prime Minister's Questions before heading to Buckingham Palace to resign as Prime Minister to the Queen.
