More and more candidates want to inherit Boris Johnson


nAfter announcing the withdrawal Boris Johnson The field of interested caliphs is expanding more and more. Over the weekend, several other politicians announced their candidacy for the Conservative Party leader, who would also be the next prime minister. It now appears that dozens of candidates could try their luck before the deadline. However, Defense Secretary Ben Wallace also lost to a candidate.

Former Finance Minister Rishi Sunak, who appeared on social media with a professional video, has received the most attention so far. The determination (and early acquisition of the field) raised suspicions that his nomination had been prepared for too long and shed new light on his resignation, which on Tuesday led to a series of resignations and with it a political end for Johnson. Newspapers in Downing Street, where Johnson wants to stay in office until his successor is elected, reported that his supporters wanted to prevent the “traitor” from winning. Anonymous “briefings” were also circulated against other candidates, using derogatory references and rumors.

The 42-year-old Sunak, in the music line video, which dealt with his Indian family’s immigration history, presented himself as a “serious candidate for tough times”. “Do we face this moment with honesty, seriousness and determination, or do we tell ourselves fairy tales that will make us feel better now but will make our children poorer in the future?” he asked. This was interpreted as an attack on Johnson, who wanted to cut taxes and expand state aid at the same time.

Sunak’s commitment to budgetary discipline sets it apart from nearly all of its competitors. Most promise drastic tax cuts, including former ministers Sajid Javed and Jeremy Hunt, as well as current Treasury Secretary Nadim Zahawi, whose nomination has been overshadowed by reports that he is under investigation for tax evasion. Outside candidates Tom Tugendhat, Soyla Braverman, and Kimi Badenok also campaigned for greater citizen relief.
