: Priti Patel rules herself out of U.K. Tory leadership contest


U.K. Home Secretary, Priti Patel, has announced she will not be running in the race for leadership of the Conservative party, as candidates work to gather the 20 MPs needed to get their names on the ballot paper, after Boris Johnson agreed to step down as leader and Prime Minister last week.

In a statement, the home secretary said that while she was “grateful for the encouragement and support” of colleagues, “I will not be putting my name forward for the ballot of MPs”, the Guardian newspaper reported Tuesday.
