Former British chancellor Rishi Sunak, who is of Indian descent and is running for the leadership of the Conservative Party in order to succeed Liz Truss as Prime Minister and improve the economy, formally announced his intention to run for the position on Sunday.
Even though supporters of his former boss, Boris Johnson, have claimed that he has the necessary 100 MPs needed to make it to the shortlist, the 42-year-old candidate is the clear frontrunner as he raced ahead with the backing of at least 128 Tory members of Parliament. The shortlist consists of the top three candidates.
Even though the former Conservative leader and the prime minister have not yet made his official candidacy known, the race is shaping up to be a three-way fight between Sunak, Johnson, and Penny Mordaunt, who is now in third place in the race for the position of Leader of the Commons.

A key part of Sunak’s campaign appeal was a tweet in which he said, “The United Kingdom is a magnificent country but we confront a serious economic catastrophe.”
“Because of this, I’ve decided to run for the position of Leader of the Conservative Party and to become your next Prime Minister. He stated, “I want to fix our economy, I want to unite our party, and I want to deliver for our country.”
In a vision statement that accompanied the proposal, the former minister of finance highlighted his track record of serving in the Cabinet and assisting in the navigation of the economy through the most difficult of times, which was caused by the COVID pandemic.
“The difficulties that we are up against right now are even more significant. However, if we make the proper decision, there are incredible chances available to us. “I have the track record of delivery, a clear strategy to tackle the biggest problems we face, and I will deliver on the promise of the 2019 manifesto,” he tweeted. “I will deliver on the promise of the 2019 manifesto.”
“At every level of government that I manage, there will be ethics, professionalism, and accountability, and I will work tirelessly each and every day to ensure that the task at hand is completed.” I am writing to inquire about the possibility of contributing to the resolution of our issues,” he went on to say.
