Liz Truss has joined the Tory leadership race to replace Boris Johnson as prime minister.

The foreign clerk threw her chapeau into the ring with a social media videotape setting out her vision as numerous of the 10 other campaigners have formerly done- and followed her rivals by promising duty cuts.

In a videotape posted to Twitter with the tagline” Trusted to deliver”, she said a high minister with” experience, who can hit the ground running from day one” is demanded.

The elderly Cabinet minister, who’s extensively anticipated to be a front- runner in the formerly crowded race, promised to “ start cutting levies from day one ” to help with the cost of living.

She may have plodded to set herself piecemeal from the other campaigners when conniving how to catch the keys to Number 10, given so numerous of the challengers have also offered duty cuts.

Critics have been prompting campaigners to explain how they would pay for the duty cuts and numerous have been indicted wanting to have their cutlet and eat it too with pledges they will be unfit to deliver.

Ms Stilt has pledged to reverse the controversial public insurance hike if made Tory leader, as she claimed she can be “ trusted to deliver ”.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, while also offering duty cuts as part of his strategy to win the leadership race, avoided specific pledges in his social media videotape and rather promised backbenchers support with commodity they will want to secure maybe further than anything differently.
” I can help you win your seat,” he said, as he appealed directly to the MPs whose nominations he needs to get into the competition’s final round.

In the 13-alternate long videotape, he says” My case for leadership is simple I can plan, I can deliver, I can communicate, I can campaign, I can help you win your seat.”


Which conservatives are running to replace Boris Johnson?

It’s mixed field of challengers- substantially on the right sect of the Conservative Party which could be described as a David and Goliath race, with backbench minnows taking on Cabinet big beasts.
The likes of Rehman Chishti, a recently appointed Foreign Office minister largely unknown outside Westminster, are taking on forces similar as former health registers Sajid Javid and Jeremy Hunt.

What are the rules of the contest? And how long will it take?

The schedule and rules of the leadership race, similar as how numerous nominations a seeker will need to progress on to the coming round, will be blazoned by the 1922 Committee of backbench MPs, following a meeting on Monday evening.

It’s understood the commission wants the packed pool of campaigners to be whittled down to two by coming Thursday, so the MPs can make their nominations before they break for summer recess on July 21.
Bob Blackman, common- superintendent clerk of the 1922 Committee, said the threshold for support to enter the Conservative Party leadership race is likely to be 20.

He told Sky News” The view is that campaigners to get on the ballot paper should demonstrate a broad swathe of support amongst Conservative MPs.

” So we are looking at a proposer, a seconder and either 18 sympathizers or conceivably more sympathizers in order to reduce that list.”

The threshold in the former leadership contest was eight nominations, but it’s being increased to 20 wants to speed up the process.
” We have got to slim down the list of campaigners enough snappily down to two.

” And the one thing that we are committed to do is to achieve getting to two campaigners by Thursday 21 July.
” That means that we’ll hold a race of ballots over the coming many days in order to get to that position.”

Ballots are likely to be held this Wednesday and Thursday and coming Tuesday and Wednesday, he said.

He added” The first ballot is likely to have a threshold of 10 of the votes, i.e. 36 MPs, supporting a seeker for them to go through to the alternate ballot. That formerly again isn’t verified yet, but I suspect that will be the case.

” After that we presumably will not need thresholds because the list will dock vastly.”
Formerly there are just two campaigners remaining, the decision will be passed to Tory members who’ll bounce for the winner and whoever gets a simple maturity will be culminated party leader and high minister.

Who’s backing who?

Former Cabinet minister Michael Gove – who was dramatically sacked by Mr Johnson before this week – pledged his support for Ms Badenoch.

Work and Pensions Secretary Therese Coffey said she’d back Ms Truss.
Andrea Leadsom, who has contended for the Tory leadership in the history, championed Ms Mordaunt.

Mr Sunak is leading the race at this early stage with the most nominations- a huge 34- and is championed by former Cabinet associates Oliver Dowden and Mark Spencer.
