The United Kingdom will today learn who will replace Boris Johnson as its prime minister.
At approximately 12:30 p.m. in London (7:30 a.m. ET), the governing Conservative Party will announce the winner of its leadership contest.
The process was triggered after Johnson resigned as leader on July 7 after months of scandals rendered his position untenable.
He will be replaced by either Rishi Sunak, the former Chancellor of the Exchequer who resigned from Johnson’s Cabinet in protest, or Liz Truss, the current foreign secretary.
The winner will inherit a country living through the worst cost-of-living crisis in recent memory and a party bitterly divided following Johnson’s divisive premiership.
