London: Boris Johnson has been declared as the new United Kingdom prime Minister on Tuesday.
New PM Boris Johnson paid tribute to his opponent Jeremy Hunt after winning Conservative leadership contest.
He says, Mr Hunt is a "font of excellent ideas" and he promises to steal them. He also pays tribute to outgoing PM Theresa May for her service to the country.
The outgoing PM pledges 'full support' to the new PM in her tweet.
Many congratulations to @BorisJohnson on being elected leader of @Conservatives - we now need to work together to deliver a Brexit that works for the whole UK and to keep Jeremy Corbyn out of government. You will have my full support from the back benches.— Theresa May (@theresa_may) July 23, 2019
