Senior Tory Damian Green endorses Rishi Sunak to be next prime minister

Conservative MP Damian Green has announced he is backing Rishi Sunak in the Tory leadership race.

As the chair of the One Nation Conservatives group, Mr Green’s endorsement will provide large momentum to leadership hopeful Rishi Sunak.

Rishi Sunak will welcome the endorsement after defence secretary Ben Wallace and former leadership hopeful Tom Tugendhat announced they were backing Liz Truss to be prime minister.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Westminster Hour, Mr Green said: “I think he [Rishi Sunak] would make a very very good prime minister to meet the huge challenges that we have over the next couple of years and I think hes’ in a very good position to unify the party which is an essential part of winning the next election.”
