Mordaunt failed to get 100 nominations that will help her progress in the contest.

Foreign media reported that Former PM Boris Johnson was planning a comeback but later said “it’s not the right time” for him to return to the office.

Meanwhile, Mordaunt urged Britons to back Rishi’s administration.

“This decision is an historic one and shows, once again, the diversity and talent of our party. Rishi has my full support,” Mordaunt tweeted.
