Environment Secretary Michael Gove said that he would be running to replace Theresa May as British Prime Minister, according to Sky News.
"I can confirm that I will be putting my name forward to be prime minister of this country," Gove said as quoted by Sky News.
"I believe that I'm ready to unite the Conservative and Unionist Party, ready to deliver Brexit, and ready to lead this great country," he added.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced her resignation on the morning of 24 May. She will remain head of the UK government until her successor is chosen.
Brussels then subsequently moved the deadline for London to 31 October.
