Liz Truss: On Monday, the ruling conservative party (Conservative Party or Tory) announced the results of the vote. Liz Truss won by more than 20,000 votes. Liz got 81 thousand 326 votes out of total valid votes. Sunak got 60 thousand 399 votes.
However, British citizens could not participate in this vote. 160,000 members of the country’s ruling party, the Conservative Party, voted for Liz under “special circumstances” to succeed Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Liz will be replaced by the party after the official resignation of Boris accused of the Partygate scandal. She will be the third woman to occupy 10 Downing Street after Margaret Thatcher and Theresa May.
Counting of online and ballot votes began at Conservative Campaign Headquarters (CCHQ) on Sunday. Returning Officer Sir Graham Brady announced the result. It is reported that Liz will be sworn in as Britain’s third female prime minister on Tuesday. After being elected Prime Minister, Liz wrote on Twitter, “I am honored to be elected leader of the Conservative Party. Thank you for placing your trust in me to lead our great country. I will take bold steps to grow our economy and strengthen the country’s foundation, with everyone in this difficult time.’ Sunak, on the other hand, offered a message of support to the newly elected Prime Minister after accepting defeat in the polls.
