Mark Logan MP backs Rishi Sunak as next Prime Minister



A Bolton Conservative MP has announced who he is backing as the next Prime Minister.

Mark Logan, MP for Bolton North East, announced he would be backing Rishi Sunak as the next Prime Minister.

Mr Logan, who was hospitalised earlier this week after a biking incident, took to Twitter to announce his intentions.

He posted a selfie from his hospital bed captioned ‘I’m backing…’ with writing on a board behind him saying ‘RISHI’ in block capitals, with the special instructions reading ‘look to the future.’

This comes after the resignation of Prime Minister Liz Truss yesterday (Thursday) afternoon.

Ms Truss’ resignation came after weeks of chaos following a disastrous mini-budget which plunged the economy into turmoil. 

The chaos came to a head on Wednesday as Home Secretary Suella Braverman resigned due to a ‘security issue’ and the chief whip and deputy chief whip reportedly resigned amidst a vote on fracking motioned by Labour.
