Elections are held in two phases
In Britain, the election of the leader of the Conservative Party takes place in two phases. Party MPs voted in the first phase. The voting process continues until there are two candidates left. This time voting has been done in 5 phases. Then there are two candidates Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss left in the last race. The special thing is that Rishi Sunak has been the first choice of MPs in all these 5 phases. Now this step is complete. Both the candidates are holding rallies across the country and seeking votes from party members.
In the second phase only party members have a role. The Conservative Party’s 1.8 lakh members will choose one of these candidates as their leader by postal ballot. The one who gets the most votes out of the two candidates becomes the leader of the party and the next PM. However, before voting, all the surveys have come out in which Rishi Sunak seems to be lagging behind.
