Former UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak and current Foreign Secretary Liz Truss are vying to lead the Conservative party in the UK. Whoever wins will become Prime Minister, replacing Boris Johnson. The final vote, the ballot, closed yesterday, our time, and the result is tomorrow, UK time. Somewhere around 160,000 Conservative voters have made this decision. Truss will become Britain's third female prime minister, or Sunak its first non-white one.
