Who are the top contenders to replace Liz Truss and their net worths 2022?

British PM Liz Truss resigned on October 20, bringing an end to her brief 44-day tenure.

While Truss will remain in place as caretaker prime minister until a successor is named, here is a list of main contenders for the top job.

Britain's former finance minister Rishi Sunak is now seen as a favorite to replace her. He has a net worth of $225 million.

Penny Mordaunt, former Defense Secretary, finished third in the prime minister race. She has a net worth of $4 million.

Despite being ousted from office, Boris Johnson can also return to the top job. His net worth is believed to be around $2 million.

Defense Secretary Ben Wallace is popular among MPs and was a favorite to replace Johnson. His net worth is around $50 million.

Britain’s new Finance Minister Jeremy Hunt is considered a powerful figure in the government. He has a net worth of $1.5 million.

If Conservative MPs aren't able to reach a consensus vote on a future leader, the UK would possibly go to polls.
