Candidates to replace Boris Johnson enter first televised debate


T + D- Normal size

The candidates vying to succeed British Prime Minister Boris Johnson went head-to-head during the first televised debate on Friday, and the race grew fierce.

There are five remaining contenders in the race that began after Johnson’s resignation announcement last Thursday.

Secretary of State for International Trade Penny Mordant, former Finance Minister Rishi Sunak, Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, former Secretary of State for Equality Kimi Budnoch and MP Tom Dugentat was able to discuss his views on UK TV 4.

The candidates refused to engage in controversy or personal attacks among themselves, emphasizing their common bond with the conservative family. But “Is Boris Johnson honest?” They blushed when asked, with Patenuch replying “sometimes” with a laugh, Dugentat saying “no” to the applause, and the other three candidates giving vague answers.

Rishi Sunak, 42, said he was proud to be in Johnson’s government but resigned last week because he felt “enough was enough”. He came first on Thursday in a second poll organized by Tory MPs to reduce the number of candidates, ahead of Mordaunt and Terrace.
