Boris Johnson announced as Britain’s next Prime Minister

Boris Johnson has been the new British prime minister and his tenure, set to begin on Wednesday.

 
Boris Johnson received 66% of the vote, on an 87% turnout.
 
Frontrunner Boris Johnson has defeated rival Jeremy Hunt in the contest to replace Theresa May as Conservative party leader and as Britain's prime minister.
 
Johnson notes his campaign slogan -- "Deliver, Unite, Defeat" -- had an unfortunate acronym, so he adds an 'E' at the end for "energize."
