The Foreign secretary Liz Truss and former chancellor Rishi Sunak are currently competing in the race to succeed Boris Johnson as next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.  As far as the opinion  polls are concerned, Truss has been leading the table .The differences in taxation policy followed by Truss has been the predominant factor in this lead.
