Former Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak and Foreign Secretary Liz Truss will take part in the final run-off of the Conservative leadership contest, following Wednesday’s vote of Tory MPs which saw Trade Minister Penny Mordaunt eliminated. 

After five rounds of voting among lawmakers whittled down the initial eight contenders, the two remaining candidates will embark on a six-week summer campaign, traveling the country to make their case in front of the wider Tory party membership.
