Former UK Chancellor of the Exchequer announces his candidacy for prime minister

Former Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak has officially announced his candidacy for the new leader of the Conservative Party and prime minister.

“I will be the next leader of the Conservative Party and your prime minister,” Sunak tweeted. “Let’s restore confidence, restore the economy and reunite the country.”

Boris Johnson, who succeeded Theresa May as prime minister in 2019, announced on Thursday that he will step down as prime minister and head of the UK’s Conservative Party and remain in office until a new prime minister is appointed.
