London, July 26
There was no clear winner between former Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Foreign Secretary Liz Truss on Tuesday after the UK’s PM candidates went head-to-head in their first TV debate as finalists and clashed fiercely on their economic policies and tax plans.
A snap Opinium poll of who performed best on Monday night debate found Sunak just slightly ahead at 39%, compared to Truss at 38%. However, 47% of Conservative Party voters thought it was the Foreign Secretary, who was the better performer, with 38% preferring Sunak. The ballot will close on the evening of September 2 and the winner will be announced on September 5. — PTI
