Following the new Prime Minister, Boris Johnson’s, reformation of the Government, Jeremy has been promoted within the Whip's Office to the role of Comptroller of Her Majesty’s Household with effect from 28 July 2019.
Both Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson, as the final two leadership candidates, are currently travelling around the UK making their pitches to the membership. Members are able to ask questions of both candidates during the hustings.
So the result of the third ballot is now out. Of the 313 Members of Parliament representing the Conservative Party, 157 or 50.16% voted for Boris Johnson. Michale Gove leap-frogged Jeremy Hunt and they won 61 votes and 59 votes respectively.
