Nadhim Zahawi and Jeremy Hunt were both eliminated from yesterday’s contest because they failed to get the minimum threshold of 30 votes required to advance to the next round.

Hunt said he would support Rishi Sunak, but it is unknown to whom Zahawi might give his support.

The candidate with the fewest votes today will be eliminated.
