There is a very good chance that I would be successful in the election with Conservative Party members - and that I could indeed be back in Downing Street on Friday, Boris Johnson, via statement.

But in the course of the last days I have sadly come to the conclusion that this would simply not be the right thing to do.

You can’t govern effectively unless you have a united party in parliament, Boris Johnson, via statement.

Therefore I am afraid the best thing is that I do not allow my nomination to go forward and commit my support to whoever succeeds.

I believe I have much to offer but I am afraid that this is simply not the right time, Boris Johnson, via statement.

Mordaunt pulled out of the race on Oct.

24.

This means that Sunak will now be appointed the third British premier in two months.
