With the U.K. general election taking place this Thursday, Anadolu Agency takes a look at the leaders of the main parties.
Boris Johnson, 55, is the leader of the ruling center-right Conservative Party and prime minister. He has long been one of Britain’s most-high-profile politicians.
He is the former editor of the right-wing Spectator magazine and a former columnist for the center-right Telegraph newspaper. In the latter position, he garnered controversy for allegedly racist comments about Muslims and foreigners, an issue which he was challenged on during the current election campaign.
