Nächste Wahlrunde bei den Tories, nächster Sieg für Boris Johnson. 143 der 313 Stimmen der Tory-Abgeordneten entfielen auf den ehemaligen britischen Außenminister.
Here’s how the results break down for round three of the Tory leadership contest (round two results in brackets):
Boris Johnson has raced further ahead in the battle for No 10 after another sensational win in the third Tory leadership ballot.
Dominic Raab, who was knocked out on Tuesday, has backed Boris Johnson.
Surviving candidates will face further ballots until only two are left. Members of the Conservative Party will then be able to vote on the final two.
The committee is set to vote on its leader on June 27 and its list on July 11. The two votes will be held within the party committee, which has about 1,000 members.
The faction made the decision after 60 percent of the party voted against motions to hold open primaries or to freeze the current list.
That decision was seen as a failure for Zandberg, and for the current list of candidates, whose posts are now in jeopardy.
Current Meretz chair MK Tamar Zandberg faces at least one challenger in former party MK Nitzan Horowitz who announced he was running for the party chairmanship last week.
The Meretz convention also voted against a proposal to institute two party chairmen, an idea designed to allow a Jewish and an Arab leader of the party.
With Boris Johnson enjoying a seemingly unassailable lead, having won 114 votes in the first round of ballots in the leadership contest to decide our next Prime Minister, his remaining rivals have only one hope: that he will fall, in spectacular fashion, at the final hurdle.
– The first round of the Conservative Party leadership contest took place this morning with No10 as the prize
– Ex-foreign secretary Boris Johnson romped to victory with an impressive 114 votes out of the total 313 MPs
– Mr Johnson is now looking increasingly likely to end up as PM with bookmakers slashing their odds again
– Jeremy Hunt was second with 43 but a long way behind as they prepare for the second round on Tuesday
– Three of the hopefuls were knocked out despite pleading for support from MPs as they came to vote today
– Aid Secretary Rory Stewart scraped through and quickly attacked Mr Johnson over threats to force No Deal
The first round of voting has concluded and the results are in. All 313 Tory MPs voted. Candidates with sixteen votes and under are automatically booted out…
The former foreign secretary Boris Johnson comfortably topped the poll as expected, securing the support of 114 of his Tory colleagues – well above the 105 he would need to guarantee a place in the final two.
Im Rennen um das Amt des Parteichefs der britischen Konservativen und Premierministers ist Boris Johnson in einer ersten Wahlrunde als Favorit bestätigt worden. Der frühere Außenminister erhielt 114 Stimmen.
Voting will take place by secret ballot in the Commons, with a result expected some time after 13.00 BST.
Any of the 10 candidates who fails to secure at least 17 votes will be eliminated from the contest.
Conservative leadership candidates including Boris Johnson hoping to force a “deal or no deal” Brexit in October have been handed a boost after MPs defeated a Labour-led attempt to tie the next prime minister’s hands.

Each political group in the European parliament – the centre-left socialists, the centre-right European People’s Party (EPP), the liberals, greens etc, propose a lead candidate. In theory, the candidate from the group that comes top becomes the president.
But this system isn’t written into the treaties, and has only been used once in 2014 – it’s not clear whether it will survive. Member states don’t like it because it takes power away from them and gives it to the parliament, and they’re under no legal obligation to follow it.
The interview took place late Monday, just after Costa had a conference call with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, the Netherlands‘ Mark Rutte and Belgium’s Charles Michel.
