UK Conservative members sent more than one ballot in leadership vote

What Has Boris Johnson Sacrificed For Good Of UK?'Higher Wage, He Says

The Conservative Party and the independent body hired to scrutinise the running of the leadership election were both unable to say how many ballot papers had been sent in error.

Senior members of the Conservative Party have called for action to prevent party members voting multiple times in the leadership contest after some were issued with more than one ballot paper.

Party chair Brandon Lewis said people registered at more than one address or who have recently changed their names could be affected.

Voting is due to close on July 22, with the victor set to be announced a day later.

Members are warned that voting twice will mean they are expelled, the Conservatives said.

But Labour's shadow policing minister Louise Haigh dismissed Mr Johnson's policies as "fairly meaningless, cheap headline grabbing measures".

Ballot papers have been dispatched to around 166,000 Conservative Party members around the United Kingdom to choose between Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson as the new Tory leader, who will take charge at 10 Downing Street.

Brexit has become an "existential" issue for both main parties so they need to "move on and get it done", the newspaper quoted him as saying.

Scotland has been traditional tricky terrain for Britain's governing Conservative Party, which has not topped a British general election there since the 1950s.

Rahul Gandhi resigns as leader of India's opposition
Sources in the party said that Congress leaders are deliberating to find out a suitable replacement of Gandhi. Gandhi will remain in India's Parliament, where he represents a constituency in the southern state of Kerala.

Mr Johnson promised a "relentless focus" on knife crime and criticised the 2014 measures on stop and search brought in by Mrs May.

Talking about his views on the justice system, Mr Johnson told the Daily Mail: "I'm afraid there are too many people, because of the way the sentencing law works, who have committed serious violence or sexual offences who are being let out, as the law prescribes, after they've served only half the sentence that is pronounced in open court".

The Conservative Party members choosing her successor are, by and large, middle-aged, middle-class, white, male - and strongly pro-Brexit.

Meanwhile, Hunt is set to talk about serious leadership needed in the UK.

According to the BBC, some members have already received two ballot papers.

"It's time to make a hard choice for the future not a feel-good one for the summer", he will say.

Mr Hunt also insisted he was not bluffing about being willing to walk away without a deal, although he told the Sunday Telegraph it was "not the most secure way of guaranteeing Brexit" because MPs would try to block it.

It reported that in a speech on Tuesday, Javid will say: "Trust in our democracy will be at stake if we don't make October 31 a "deal or no deal" deadline".
