British Conservative lawmakers and ex-health ministers Jeremy Hunt, and Sajid Javid announced that they would be joining the race for Boris Johnson’s prime ministership in interviews with The Telegraph newspaper.

Hunt said to the Telegraph, “It’s very clear why I want it to do it.” “We must restore trust, grow our economy, and win next election,” Hunt said.

Javid, who was also a former minister of finance, said to the newspaper that “we cannot afford not have tax cuts.”
