Interior Minister Sajid Javid has also applied for the succession of British Prime Minister Theresa May. „We have to implement the Brexit,“ wrote the ambitious politician today on Twitter. He also wanted to build confidence in the UK again. The son of a bus driver from Pakistan was originally against the EU exit, but changed the sides.
Several conservatives have already thrown their hat in the ring. It is expected that up to 20 Tories will compete in the fight for the job of the party leader and thus the prime minister.
Boris Johnson with great opportunities?
The biggest opportunities are given to the Brexit hardliner and former Secretary of State Johnson. May had announced Friday that she will resign as party leader on June 7. By the end of July, a successor will be determined, then she wants to give the government business.
Britain is to leave the international community by 31 October. However, the exit agreement negotiated by May with Brussels has been rejected three times by Parliament, which has been totally divided over the Brexit exchange rate. A solution is not in sight. If this is the case, an abrupt end to membership threatens to have dramatic consequences.
