Boris Johnson will be Britain’s new Prime Minister. He will be succeed Theresa May.
Johnson defeated his rival Jeremy Hunt in the Conservative Party. Johnson won 92,153 votes, while Hunt could gather only 46,656 votes.
After the results were declared, the hardcore Brexit supporter declared that he will “deliver Brexit, unite the country” and defeat Labour opposition. The 55-year-old blonde haired Johnson had a “do or die” pledge to deliver Brexit in over three months time.
The formal appointment will take place on Wednesday afternoon.
Indian-origin MPs Priti Patel and Rishi Sunak are expected to be part of Johnson’s new team.
