LONDON (Reuters) - Voters in a Welsh parliamentary seat will head to the polls on August 1 to elect a new lawmaker just over a week after Theresa May hands over to her successor, in an early test for the new prime minister.
Earlier this month, voters in Brecon and Radnorshire backed a petition to oust their Conservative lawmaker Chris Davies, who was convicted in March of falsifying two invoices.
On Thursday, the date of August 1 was set for the vote, known as a by-election.
Former foreign minister Boris Johnson and current foreign minister Jeremy Hunt are both vying to replace May.
