Johnson urged not to support Rishi Sunak in the election of the British Prime Minister

Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on the out-of-race candidates for the head of the Conservative Party and the country’s prime minister to support any candidacy, except for the candidacy of former Treasury Secretary Rishi Sunak.


It is clarified that Johnson’s team has a personal dislike for Sunak. According to one source, it is Sunak who is accused of overthrowing Johnson.


Earlier it was reported that Boris Johnson, who recently announced his resignation, requested in Parliament a vote on a vote of confidence in the government.


Recall that Boris Johnson, who has been in office since July 2019, announced his resignation as prime minister and leader of the Conservative Party on July 7 after a series of public scandals. He will continue to serve until a successor is chosen.
