Tory leadership ballot: Hack risk delays race – when will the Tory leadership contest end?


Conservatives are still anticipating the announcement of the next Tory leader and Prime Minister by September 5.

The adjusted ballot posting means that some people will have less time to vote than others.

The competition closes on September 2, a few days before the announcement, meaning most Tory members have a month to vote.

A new timetable gives those who receive their ballots by August 11 only have around 20 days to make a final decision.

Most people won’t need this long, but Mr Sunak and Ms Truss are likely weary of a last-minute shake-up.
