Johnson elected new UK PM

London, July 23: Boris Johnson won the Conservative Partys leadership race to become the next Prime Minister of Britain, amid the political uncertainty over the countrys divorce deal with the European Union.

Johnson, the former foreign secretary and London Mayor, was widely expected to beat foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt in the battle for 10 Downing Street, which was triggered last month when a Brexit-battered May resigned amid a mounting rebellion from within the Conservative Party.

He said that I will work flat out to repay your confidence.  Johnson won 92,153 votes compared to 46,656 polled for Hunt by a voting base of 159,320 Tory membership, with 509 rejected ballots.
