Boris Johnson returns from holiday on Friday to launch his campaign to become the new leader of the Conservative Party and UK prime minister.
The Telegraph writes about it.
According to the publication, Johnson is already privately urging Conservative MPs to support his return to Downing Street, promising that only he can win the next general election for the Tories.
The former prime minister asks another potential candidate, Rishi Sunak, to contact him and "get back together" in government.
Johnson will return from a vacation in the Caribbean already on Friday, and a meeting of supporters of the campaign, led by Jacob Rees-Mogg, is scheduled for Saturday.
No prime minister has returned for a second term after being dismissed since Labour's Harold Wilson, and before him Sir Winston Churchill, Johnson's British political idol.
Only those MPs who receive the support of 100 of the nearly 360 Tory MPs will go through to the first round. Candidates have until 2:00 p.m. Monday to collect the necessary votes.
It will be recalled that British Prime Minister Liz Truss announced her resignation after 6 weeks in office.
