Overseas Network, July 25 (Reuters) - Shortly after Boris Johnson took office as British Prime Minister on July 24, Jeremy Hunt, Johnsons rival for the post of Prime Minister, confirmed that he would leave office and become a back seat member (ordinary parliamentarian).
Hunter said on Twitter the same day that he refused Johnsons position in the Cabinet and decided to become a back seat member. But he will remain fully supportive of the new prime minister.
He also mentioned his three beautiful sons and daughters, saying it was time to meet the biggest challenge - to be a good father.

Hunter is 52 years old and his father is Royal Admiral and Sir Nicholas Hunter. He has a first-class degree in philosophy, politics and economics from Oxford University. After graduation, he went to Japan and became interested in Oriental culture.
Hunter has rich experience in politics. He has served as Minister of Culture, Minister of Health and Minister of Foreign Affairs successively. Hunt is also Chinas foreign son-in-law, and his wife Lucia Guo is from Xian, China.
Hunter was once considered a popular candidate for the Conservative Party and the next Prime Minister of the ruling party in Britain. However, the results of the Conservative leader election released on July 23 show that Johnson defeated Hunt to become the new leader of the Conservative Party.
