Boris Johnson has been elected leader of the United Kingdom’s Conservative Party and, by default, the country’s next prime minister.
The former mayor of London won the votes of 92,153 Conservative members, while his rival Jeremy Hunt got 46,656 votes.
Johnson is set to become prime minister on Wednesday when Theresa May formally steps down.
