Next Conservative Party Leader Betting Odds

Boris Johnson has finally resigned as Prime Minister and leader of the Conservative Party. With several candidates now getting their political ducks in a row. The leading Tory MP’s will aim to canvas lots of votes from their fellow members of parliament. With the betting indicating that we could have a wide open contest.

Who will be the next Conservative Party Leader

It is Ben Wallace who is currently the market leader to replace the hapless Johnson. With the defence minister trading at 11/4 with Betfair to become the next Party leader. With Wallace regarded as a safe pair of hands who can steer the government through choppy waters over the coming months and years.

However, there has also been money for Rishi Sunak, someone who served as Chancellor of the Exchequer for Johnson. Until resigning from his post shortly before the Prime Minister’s demise. Sunak is someone who is thought to have aspirations to take charge of his own party and the millionaire is 4/1 with bet365 to get the nod.

Perhaps we will see another female Conservative Party leader who will follow in the footsteps of Margaret Thatcher and Theresa May. There is certainly a case for Penny Mordaunt who has been MP for Portsmouth North since 2010. And William Hill have 6/1 that the Minister of State for Trade Policy takes the party forward.

Liz Truss is another female candidate who is prominent in the betting. The Foreign Minister was actually overseas when Boris Johnson announced his resignation. Although she has hot-footed it back to the UK and will be testing the water to see if there’s a demand for her to stand for election. Paddy Power have 9/1 about this candidate.

Other Contenders to the Leadership chase

Sajid Javid is certainly an interesting contender. With the former Health Secretary making a heartfelt speech in the House of Commons on Wednesday 6 July. Where he declared that promises had not been kept and the MP has a convincing majority in his Bromsgrove constituency. Betfred are biggest with their 11/1 quote about the shopkeeper’s son.

There are plenty of other candidates who might be tempted to stand. Jeremy Hunt was recently outspoken about Johnson’s premiership and has previously stood for the leadership. With Betfred going 14/1 that the former Education and Health Secretary gets the opportunity to lead the party into battle.

One other interesting contender is Nadhim Zahawi. Who was briefly appointed as Chancellor of the Exchequer under Boris Johnson. Before the former apparently persuaded the latter to resign. Bet365 have 14/1 that we see this MP take things forward.
