Rishi Sunak, Liz Truss through to final round of UK PM race

Former finance minister Rishi Sunak and foreign secretary Liz Truss will battle it out to become Britain’s next prime minister after they won the final vote among Conservative Party MPs, setting up the last stage of the contest to replace former leader Boris Johnson.
Johnson was forced to resign this month after he lost the support of his legislators following months of scandals, including breaches of COVID-19 pandemic lockdown rules.
Sunak has led in all rounds of the voting among Conservative legislators but it is Truss who seems to have gained the advantage so far among the 200,000 members of the governing party who will ultimately choose the winner.
