LONDON: With British Prime Minister Theresa May failure looming over Brexit, Conservative MP British Pakistani Sajid Javid is among the top contenders eyeing for 10 Downing Street.

The former investment banker and the son of a Pakistani bus driver, the 49-year-old Javid is the face of a modern, multi-cultural and meritocratic Britain .

On the economically liberal wing of the Conservative Party, Javid voted for Britain to stay in the European Union in 2016 but has since backed the Brexit cause.

Since being appointed an interior minister in April, he has earned respect for his handling of a scandal over the treatment of the children of Caribbean immigrants known as the Windrush generation.
