Conservative Electoral Rules

The conservative party since 1998 has used a two stage system of electing a leader; first all candidates declare and go to a ballot of Conservative Westminster MPs - these candidates are then whittled down in ballot after ballot until two candidates remain. These two candidates are then put to a vote of the party's members who, by a majority vote, elect the new leader after a short campaigning period.

To declare candidacy a candidate must submit an application with a seconder and proposer.
