Coming up Next to UK
A new PM is expected to be announced by September 9, which is roughly a month before Cameron steps down during the October 2 Conservative Party conference. And election rules in the U.K. mean that the new PM will hail from the Conservative Party, and we’ll be getting the list of candidate soon enough once nominations close later today (June 30, 2016).
As to who the likely candidates are and who will likely win, some polls shows that Theresa May is in the lead at 36% with Brexit Boris trailing behind at 27%, which is weird and could be a cause for more turmoil and uncertainty in the financial markets since Theresa May is from the defeated “remain” camp.
