Escolha do próximo Primeiro ministro do RU
July 11, 2022 -
O sucessor do Primeiro ministro britânico Boris Johnson será escolhido
pelos militantes do Partido Conservador, que irão recortar a lista de
candidatos até um confronto final entre os dois últimos concorrentes.
Candidates putting themselves forward for the leadership must be nominated by other Conservative members of parliament, or MPs. How many nominations they require will be set out by the committee in charge of running the contest, according to Reuters.
Conservative MPs then hold several rounds of votes to whittle down the field. This process is repeated until there are two candidates remaining. The final two are then put to a postal ballot of the wider Conservative Party membership, with the winner named the new leader.
