The new leader of the center-right party will nearly certainly become prime minister, and would lead the country to solve the turmoil of Brexit.
On Brexit, which he described as an "unashamedly personal" matter for him, he said he would be prepared to delay Britain's withdrawal beyond October 31 if negotiations with the European Union on a new deal were making progress.

But the issue hasn't gone away especially since an article he wrote in 1999 surfaced in which he condemned "London's liberal consensus" for pushing for looser laws on drug use.

Gove has signalled he could be open to delaying Brexit again rather than leave without a deal on October 31.
This means that high earning Scots would not benefit from Mr Johnson's proposed tax cut, but would be liable to pay the higher NI contributions, leading to higher bills.
"All candidates in this race owe the public clear answers", Harper said of Johnson. "I know you have before, and I know you may not believe in your heart that you can do it, but the Conservative Party membership deserve a choice".
At campaign launches on Monday, several made their pitches. He has a history of missteps and his advisers appear keen to manage his campaign carefully.
