British Foreign Minister Liz Truss maintaines her lead over former finance minister Rishi Sunak in the race for the new leader of the ruling Conservative Party and the next prime minister.
But according to the results of the latest poll, the election is more uncertain than previously thought, according to the assessment of world media reported by Radio Free Europe.
A poll of members of the Conservative Party showed that Truss, who is the favorite to succeed British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, has a smaller advantage over Sunak than before, according to Reuters.
Truss has the support of 48 percent of Conservative Party members, while the former finance minister has 43 percent in a poll by the Italian company Techne, conducted among 807 conservatives from 19 to 27 July.
This, as Reuters points out, indicates a much tighter race compared to the previous poll among members of the Conservative Party. Also, the latest poll contradicts previous Jug research in the early stages of the Tory leader election, which suggested Truss had a 24 percent lead over Sunak, the Times points out.
