Johnson did not support the request to return
Sunak will succeed Liz Truss, who resigned on Thursday after just six weeks in the job. The possibility of Boris Johnson’s return was also raised, and it was announced Sunday evening that he would not apply. Johnson was British Prime Minister until early September.
