Conservatives down to six

The results of the first ballot are:

  1. Rishi Sunak 88
  2. Penny Mordaunt 67
  3. Liz Truss 50
  4. Kemi Badenoch 40
  5. Tom Tugendhat 37
  6. Suella Braverman 32
  7. Nadhim Zahawi 25
  8. Jeremy Hunt 18

So Zahawi and Hunt are out. No candidate got over 25% of so it is pretty open.

You need to get 34% of which is 120 MPs to make the final two. Would be hard to see Sunak not making the final two, so the question is will make the final two with him. It is almost certain to be a woman.
