Britain’s Conservative Party on Thursday set a high threshold of at least 100 lawmaker nominations for any leadership hopefuls, effectively limiting the race to three candidates.

Nominations will close on Monday and after a vote by Tory MPs, party members will decide the winner in an accelerated online vote with the winner announced on October 28, party managers said.
