LIVE: Boris Johnson Elected New Prime Minister



Boris Johnson will be elected leader of the Conservatives within the next few hours, entering Downing Street as Theresa May’s successor on Wednesday.

He is likely to win by a substantial margin over his rival, Jeremy Hunt, after a seven-week contest in which 160,000 Conservative members have picked the next prime minister to govern the country.
