LONDON (AP) — Voting was closing today in the race to become Britain’s next prime minister, as critics of likely winner Boris Johnson condemned his vow to take Britain out of the European Union with or without a divorce deal.

Members of the governing Conservative Party had until 5 p.m. to return postal ballots in the contest between Johnson and Jeremy Hunt to lead the party.

The winner will be announced Tuesday, and will take over as the nation’s leader from Prime Minister Theresa May the following day.
