Following Boris Johnson’s resignation, the race to find Britain’s next Prime Minister has begun.
One candidate who believes she could step up and successfully run the country is the former equalities minister, Kemi Badenoch.
Badenoch is a well-recognised politician who has been a Member of Parliament for Saffron Walden since 2017.
She is a member of the Conservative party and served in Johnson's government as the Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury and the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Equalities at the Government Equalities Office since 2020.
However, Badenoch resigned from these positions the day before Boris Johnson confirmed he would quit.
In her bid to become the next Prime Minister, Badenoch has gained a lot of support from her colleagues, including the former Levelling Up Secretary, Michael Gove.
Gove openly backed Badenoch, praising her “principled, brilliant and kind” nature.
So as she contests the Tory party’s leadership, here is all you need to know about Kemi Badenoch and what she is worth in 2022:
