Evennett backs Boris Johnson for Leader


Rt Hon Sir David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford, is supporting Boris Johnson in his campaign to succeed as the next Conservative Party Leader and Prime Minister.

Sir David commented: “We live in extraordinary times and our country faces huge challenges. Therefore, we need someone who can give leadership, implement Brexit, has the necessary talents and experience, and can restore faith in ourselves as a country and in our democracy. As Mayor of London, Boris made our capital the number one city in the world, and had a record of real achievement. I have also worked closely with him in Government and as his Whip.

“As Prime Minister, I believe Boris can lead our country to a better future and win a General Election for the Conservatives. He is a great communicator, has charisma, and is a proven vote winner.

“I am therefore supporting Boris to be elected leader of the Conservative Party.”
