Boris Johnson Will Run For UK Conservative Party Leadership

According to CNN, Boris Johnson, the former UK Foreign Secretary and an ardent critic of Theresa May's Brexit strategy, has confirmed he will run for leadership of the Conservative Party when the beleaguered Prime Minister announces her departure.

May has said she will stand aside once Brexit has been delivered, but her Withdrawal Agreement with the European Union has been soundly rejected three times by Parliament.
