Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt are the final two in the race to replace Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May.

In a fifth and final ballot of Conservative MPs, which eliminated Environment Secretary Michael Gove, Boris Johnson was again way out in front.

Mr Johnson has cast himself as the only candidate who can deliver Brexit on October 31st while fighting off the electoral threats of Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party and Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party.

Jeremy Hunt was once an opponent of leaving the European Union, who has now promised to exit with a deal.

Now about 160,000 Conservative Party grassroots members will vote on who will be their leader – and Britain’s next

prime minister – by the end of July.
