Conservative lawmakers eliminate Justice Secretary Michael Gove from the race to succeed British Prime Minister David Cameron, leaving party members to choose between Home Secretary Theresa May and Vote Leave campaigner Andrea Leadsom in the final vote.
May, the strong favourite, won 199 of the 329 votes, followed by Leadsom with 84, the party says.
Gove, who co-led the Vote Leave campaign in Britain's Brexit referendum, gained 46 votes, meaning he automatically drops out under the party's leadership election rules.
