Boris Johnson has been elected the new leader of the Conservative Party after beating out rival and British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt.
Mr Johnson will officially become the new British Prime Minister tomorrow.
Mr Johnson was elected by 92,153 to 46,656. He received 66% of the vote on an 87% turnout.
Theresa May will tender her resignation to the British Queen after taking Prime Minister’s Questions in the Commons tomorrow afternoon for the final time.
Following the announcement, Mr Johnson gave his victory speech saying that it was an “extraordinary honour and privilege” to be elected Tory leader.
Mr Johnson said that Mr Hunt was a formidable opponent and thanked Theresa May for her service.
He repeated his campaign mantra “deliver Brexit, unite the country and defeat Jeremy Corbyn”, adding: “And that is what we are going to do.”
“I know some wag who has already pointed out that deliver, unite and defeat was not the perfect acronym for an election campaign since unfortunately it spells dud,” Mr Johnson said.
