With Theresa May announcing she will leave her post as Prime Minister on June 7, we are taking a look at the next Conservative leader odds to see who could replace her.
Several potential candidates have already set out their stalls and a fierce battle is poised to take place over who will now take charge of the Brexit process.
BORIS JOHNSON @ 23/20
Former Foreign Secretary and London mayor, the charismatic 54-year-old is considered by most as the favourite to win the leadership race.
He has already confirmed he will stand, telling a business event “of course I’m going to go for it”.
DOMINIC RAAB @ 4/1
May appointed him as Brexit Secretary following the resignation of David Davis, but he quit that post in November, opposing the Draft Withdrawal Agreement.
Has insisted that the UK should not pay a £39billion divorce bill if leaving without a deal and has already been well supported in the next Conservative leader odds.
ANDREA LEADSOM @ 10/1
The 56-year-old has previously revealed that she was “seriously considering” running for the Conservative leadership.
The Leader of the Commons described the UK’s continued membership of the EU as “disgusting” and claimed that a Eurosceptic Prime Minister would have delivered Brexit already.
MICHAEL GOVE @ 10/1
Has been MP for Surrey Heath since 2005 and became Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs two years ago.
Initially supported Johnson in the 2016 leadership race, but then announced his own candidacy at the 11th hour, before being eliminated in the second ballot.
JEREMY HUNT @ 10/1
The Foreign Secretary, 52, identifies as a one-nation conservative, campaigned for Remain in the 2016 referendum and would be a moderate candidate on Brexit in the leadership election.
RORY STEWART @ 16/1
The International Development Secretary began his leadership bid in an interview with The Spectator last month.
“If you want someone who really enjoys doing stuff and loves government and is really proud of the country and feel that’s their thing, I’m really enthusiastic,” said the 46-year-old.
