Eight left in contest to lead Conservatives, after Sajid Javid pulls out

July 13, 2022


Eight candidates are left in the race to lead the conservative party – and become the next prime minister – after former health secretary Sajid Javid pulled out of the contest.

To stay in the race, leadership hopefuls had to get support of at least 20 tory MPS by Tuesday evening.


Minutes before the deadline,  Javid withdrew, saying he “looked forward to seeing the debate unfold”.

Junior minister Rehman Chishti also pulled out of the contest.


The remaining candidates are Kemi Badenoch, Suella Braverman, Jeremy Hunt, Penny Mordaunt, Rishi Sunak, Liz Truss, Tom Tugendhat and Nadhim Zahawi.
