The man who led the push for Brexit will become the United Kingdom’s next prime minister. Boris Johnson has won the Conservative Party leadership race, wooing party members with his promise of a “do or die” Brexit.
He says the UK will leave the European Union by October 31. But he first needs to unite a divided party, and an even more polarised nation.
European leaders have congratulated Johnson on his victory, saying they are ready for constructive talks.
