Tory leadership candidates face further vote as Boris Johnson holds his last cabinet
Sky News says THE LAST four runners in the Conservative leadership contest will face another round of voting later, as the party decides who will replace Boris Johnson in Downing Street.
Rishi Sunak, Penny Mordaunt, Liz Truss and Kemi Badenoch made it through Monday’s ballot to continue in the race, while Tom Tugendhat was knocked out.
But as the prospective leaders vie for the support of their fellow Tory MPs, their outgoing boss will hold his final cabinet meeting in Number 10.
Mr Johnson is expected to discuss the heatwave with his ministers – after he faced criticism for missing three emergency COBRA meetings on the matter in recent days – as well as marking the anniversary of England coming out of COVID measures.
