Rishi Sunak is one of the candidates for the position of the leader of the Conservatives and the Prime Minister of Britain.
Through a post on Twitter, he has declared his candidacy to be at the head of the Conservative Party and as prime minister of the country.
Sunak, who previously held an important post in Johnson’s cabinet during the pandemic, told his family’s story and the reasons why he chose to enter politics and now run for important posts.
“Let me tell you the story of a young girl that happened a long time ago.
She traveled in an armed plane with the hope of a better life and the love of her family.
This young woman came to Britain where she found a job but it took her more than a year to save some money to enable her husband and children to come to Britain.
One of her children was my mother, who was 15 years old at the time.
My mother studied hard and graduated from the Faculty of Pharmacy.
Then she met my father and that’s where my story started.
Family is everything to me and they gave me opportunities they could only dream of.
But it was Britain, our country, that gave them and millions like them the chance of a better future.
I entered politics because I want everyone in this country to have the same opportunities and be able to offer their children a better future.
Our country faces great challenges, the most serious of our generation.
And the decisions we make today will decide whether the next generation of Britons will have a chance at a better life.
One has to seize the moment and make the right decisions.
This is also the reason why I am running as the next leader of the Conservative Party and your Prime Minister.
I want to steer this in the right direction,” said the video shared by Sunak on Twitter.
The leadership race is expected to be one of the most open in recent history with about 16 candidates considering the possibility.
Among the names expected to run are Liz Truss, Sajid Javid, Ben Wallace, Nadhim Zahawi and Jeremy Hunt. Suella Braverman and Steve Baker have already declared their candidacies.
Among those also thought to be considering a bid are Priti Patel, the home secretary, Jake Berry, head of Tory MPs’ Northern Research Group, and Kemi Badenoch, a junior minister and rising star in the party.
Conservative MPs want the successor of Johnson to be in place until early September, despite Sir John Major’s call for it to be removed now.
