The 2019 Conservative Party leadership election occurred as a result of British Prime Minister David Cameron's retirement as leader before the 2020 General Election. Defence Secretary Michael Gove won the contest on 12th September 2019, after defeating Foreign Secretary George Osborne the member's vote.

Nominations opened on 1 August, and 6 candidates were nominated. The first ballot of MPs took place on 10 August, with exhaustive ballots of MPs also taking place on 15, 16 and 17 August, reducing the candidates to two. The general membership of the party elected the leader by postal ballot with the result announced on 12 September, with Michael Gove beating his opponent George Osborne by 15 points.

Gove would serve as Prime Minister until the Conservative Party's defeat in the 2020 General Election, and we was succeeded by Andy Burnham.
