Following elimination votes Britain's Conservative Party members will vote for the final two contenders with the victor due to replace Prime Minister Theresa May as party leader and prime minister.

Johnson, who previously also served as foreign secretary, garnered the most support from Conservative MPs in their fifth and final round of voting, coming in at 160 votes.

The Environment Secretary was knocked out of the contest on Thursday amid claims that Johnson-backers "lent" their votes to Jeremy Hunt in the final round of voting among MPs.

Before the final vote, a source close to Mr Hunt warned against reigniting the "personal psychodrama" between Mr Gove and Mr Johnson - who spearheaded the Vote Leave campaign together in 2016, but fell out after Mr Gove abandoned Mr Johnson's previous leadership bid to launch his own.

The centre-right party's 160,000 grassroots members will now pick their new leader from the final two, who will then take over from Theresa May as prime minister in late July.

British police were called to the London home of prime ministerial contender Boris Johnson after a neighbor reported an altercation.

The result of the postal ballot of all Conservative Party members will be announced in the week of July 22.

Both Mr Hunt and Mr Johnson want to secure changes to the Brexit deal before the UK's scheduled exit on October 31.

She said she has been reluctant to come forward until now out of fear of "being dismissed, being dragged through the mud". She said Trump recognized her from television and asked her advice on buying a present.

Boris Johnson has been pitted as the favourite throughout the Tory leadership battle.

"In politics surprises happen as they did today", he said.

Gove was third with 75.

The ballot of MPs earlier on Thursday saw Home Secretary Sajid Javid eliminated from the contest.

Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay, a supporter of Mr Johnson's, told the BBC this would prove a "significant challenge", given that the European Union has ruled this out and leaders are not scheduled to meet again until 17 October.

"No-deal means no-deal. It means there's a substantial change in the trading relationship with the EU"@bankofengland governor Mark Carney refutes Boris Johnson's claim that the United Kingdom could get a "standstill" on its current trade arrangements.

His bid to replace former prime minister David Cameron, who resigned after the referendum, was foiled by Gove who pulled out of his campaign saying Johnson was unsuitable for the job.

Hunt, Britain's current foreign secretary, came in a distant second.
