New Delhi, July 23: Boris Johnson is the new UK PM. He has been elected leader of the Conservatives, entering Downing Street as Theresa May's successor.
Johnson has won the UK's leadership election, by 92,153 votes to 46,656, becoming prime minister and leader of the ruling Conservative Party.
Johnson is set to take office at a time of political crisis over Brexit as he has promised to seek a new deal with the EU or leave without an agreement at the end of October.
However, parliament has rejected May's deal and refused to countenance a no-deal Brexit, while the EU has consistently said it will not reopen the agreement for further negotiations.
