Boris Johnson clear favorite to become next UK PM: pollTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Results of the poll by YouGov for The Times newspaper published on Friday showed that Johnson, who resigned from May’s cabinet last year, is well ahead of his rivals to become the leader of the ruling Conservative Party.

The poll said Johnson had the support of 39 percent of the Tory party members compared to Dominic Raab in second place with 13 percent.

The poll comes just two days after Johnson said he was fully ready to occupy the position of Britain’s premiership at a time when the country struggles to leave the European Union.

May has been facing increasing calls for her to resign especially after she failed to secure a Brexit deal in the parliament on three occasions.
