TORY MPs look set to get the chance to vote for their next leader and new Prime Minister today.
By 2pm leadership contenders bidding to succeed Liz Truss will need 100 nominations to make the ballot.
If only one has the required number of nominations, they will automatically be elected Tory leader and PM
However, if only one has the required number, they will automatically be elected Tory leader and PM.
Under 1922 committee rules, there are multiple contenders, a first vote will kick off at 3.30pm with members voting for their preferred candidate.
If there are three candidates the person with the fewest votes will be eliminated, but if only two make the ballot, they will both go through to a wider members vote.
The results will be announced at 6pm.
If, after that process, two contenders remain another vote will be cast with a result at 9pm.
If one candidate is miles ahead their rival could drop out at — knowing they do not have the support of the MPs.
If there are still two contenders left, they will go to the Tory party members who will have until 11am on Friday.
A result will be announced later that day.
