De esto ya había dicho algo en los comentarios quincenales. Bueno pues ahora este articulo de la BBC nos lo pone MUY fácil… candidatos y proceso. Lo pongo fácil yo también, copio lo importante y lo resalto.
¡¡Pero que sepáis que en principio gana Boris Johnson de calle!!
Primero el PROCESO
Ahora los candidatos
The contest will not only result in a new party leader, but also in the next prime minister of the UK. Party bosses expect a new leader to be chosen by the end of July.
Mrs May confirmed on Friday, May 24, that she will resign as party leader on 7 June, but will continue as PM while the leadership contest takes place. She agreed with chairman of the Tory backbench 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady, that the process to choose a new leader should begin the week after she stands down.
Four candidates have confirmed their intention to stand:
- Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt
- International Development Secretary Rory Stewart
- Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson
- Former Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey
However, more than a dozen more are believed to be seriously considering running – including Sir Graham, who has resigned as chair of the 1922 Committee. Tory MPs have until the week commencing 10 June to put their name forward, and any of them can stand – as long as they have the backing of two parliamentary colleagues. The candidates will be whittled down until two remain, and in July all party members will vote to decide on the winner.
The Conservative Party had 124,000 members, as of March last year. The last leader elected by the membership was David Cameron in 2005, as Theresa May was unopposed in 2016. It will be the first time Conservative members have directly elected a prime minister, as opposed to a leader of the opposition.
Boris Johnson EL FAVORITO YA HA DICHO
“We will leave the EU on 31 October, deal or no deal. The way to get a good deal is to prepare for a no deal.”
