LONDON (Reuters) - Former British foreign minister Jeremy Hunt said he would vote to oust Prime Minster Boris Johnson in a confidence vote later on Monday.

"Anyone who believes our country is stronger, fairer & more prosperous when led by Conservatives should reflect that the consequence of not changing will be to hand the country to others who do not share those values," Hunt said on Twitter.

"Today’s decision is change or lose. I will be voting for change."

Hunt ran against Johnson for the Conservative Party leadership in 2019.
