Boris Johnson won the Conservative Party leadership race by a 2-1 margin. The new prime minister, who has previously been the U.K. foreign minister and mayor of London, will likely usher in a new team of ministers. The leadership contest took place after Theresa May announced she would resign as prime minister following repeated rejections of the Brexit deal she struck with the EU last year.
