Britain’s ex-finance minister Rishi Sunak again tops the latest vote by Conservative MPs to choose a new prime minister, as another candidate was eliminated to leave three contenders in the race.

Sunak garners 118 votes, followed by former defense minister Penny Mordaunt with 92 and Foreign Secretary Liz Truss with 86. Longshot candidate Kemi Badenoch trails with 59 and is therefore eliminated from the contest.
