Boris Johnson is highly-fancied to be announced as Theresa May's successor at around 11am BST on Tuesday, in a contest against Jeremy Hunt that appeared to be over before it had even begun.
Boris Johnson is expected to be elected leader of Britain's governing Conservative Party and the country's next prime minister on Tuesday, tasked with following through on his "do or die" pledge to deliver Brexit in just over three months. First and foremost will be stemming a tide of disapproval from within his own party over his hardline Brexit strategy.
The results of the Conservative party contest will be announced after 11 a.m. (6 a.m. ET), and the victor will take over as prime minister after May steps down on Wednesday. She will then make one last speech outside the premier's Downing Street office before heading to Buckingham Palace to tender her resignation to Queen Elizabeth II.
Reporting from Westminster, Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull said that Johnson faces many challenges, particularly with regards to the ministerial resignations and Brexit.
The only deal on the table has been rejected three times by parliament and many lawmakers - including pro-EU rebels in the Conservative Party - are also vowing to block Johnson trying to take Britain out of the European Union without a deal.
The pound has fallen sharply in recent weeks on fears of a no-deal Brexit, and stands near $1.24 GBP=D3, around its lowest level for two years.
It's been Johnson's reluctance to rule out suspending the United Kingdom parliament to ram through a no-deal Brexit that has seen a string of cabinet ministers, including Chancellor Philip Hammond, pledge to resign in protest if he wins. "I will do whatever it takes to stop Brexit".
A Brexit without a divorce deal to soften the transition would also weaken London's position as the leading worldwide financial centre while jolting the northern European economy.

The 93-year-old head of state will then invite the new Conservative leader to form an administration.
Yet his sometimes shambolic appearance, self-deprecating persona and knack for humour have allowed him to survive both gaffes and scandal.
His embrace of a court jester role has won over many Britons, fed up of what many see as an out-of-touch political establishment too centred on a London elite.
