The result? Penny Mordaunt came out on top as the most competent candidate in the Tory leadership race. Here’s how we did it:

After consulting political experts, we ran all the candidates through our platform, assessing them on across a range of criterea including:

  • Leadership
  • Collaboration
  • Communication
  • Resilience
  • Influencing skills
