Stephen Crabb to announce Prime Minister bid



STEPHEN CRABB MP will make a bid to become Prime Minster and replace David Cameron, the Herald understands.

Stephen Crabb, who is currently the Work and Pensions Secretary, is understood to be teaming up with Business Secretary Sajid Javid, who would be named Chancellor if the duo were successful.

The pair have been reported to be drumming up support within the Tory party before they officially announce their plans.

Mr. Crabb was first elected as MP for Preseli Pembrokeshire in 2005 and was previously Secretary of State for Wales before his promotion this year. The nominations for the leadership candidates begin tomorrow (June 29) and close on Thursday (June 30) at midday.

David Cameron announced his intention to step down as Prime Minister following a vote to leave the European Union last week. The favourite for the position is currently Boris Johnson, who was a prominent figure in the Leave campaign.
