Boris Johnson, Rishi Sunak and Penny Mordaunt: Who are MPs backing?

Boris Johnson, Rishi Sunak and Penny Mordaunt: Who are MPs backing?

Conservative MPs have started declaring who they are backing to become the UK's next prime minister.
Currently 158 out of 357 Tory MPs have gone public with their support:

*  Rishi Sunak - 93 MPs

Boris Johnson - 44 MPs

*  Penny Mordaunt - 21 MPs

Many others may not declare who they are backing, and more could announce their decisions over the weekend - so expect the numbers to continue to change rapidly.

We are only including MPs who have told the BBC on the record who they are backing, or MPs who have publicly declared their support.

Candidates will require the support of at least 100 Tory MPs.

Penny Mordaunt is the only candidate to confirm they are running so far. Any of the other rumoured frontrunners may not actually run, or another MP could declare themselves as a candidate.

The growing list has highlighted how Conservative MPs have changed their minds since the summer. There was shock in Westminster after Caroline Johnson pledged her support to Mr Johnson - just months after resigning as vice-chair of the party and calling for him to resign.

And former chancellor Sajid Javid has decided to support Mr Sunak, after backing Liz Truss during the last leadership election.
