After being chosen as the Conservative Party’s next leader, Rishi Sunak will take office as prime minister of the United Kingdom.
In a message posted on the Conservatives’ Twitter account on Monday, he was introduced as the new leader of the UK.
After Penny Mordaunt was unable to secure enough support from fellow lawmakers to run for party leader, the former Chancellor of the Exchequer was elected.
Former British prime minister Boris Johnson also dropped out of the contest, claiming that “the timing is not right.”
A few days after Liz Truss announced her resignation after 45 days in office, Sunak assumes the role. After receiving harsh criticism for her economic policies, Truss resigned.
After two months, Sunak is now the third prime minister of the UK.
The 42-year-family old’s immigrated to Britain in the 1960s, giving him Indian ancestry.
Sunak became well-known in the UK after Johnson chose him to be the chief secretary to the Treasury in 2019.
In order to stop Britain from sliding into political and economic difficulties, it is anticipated that the former financial analyst will enforce stability inside the Conservative Party and across the country.
He should implement significant spending cuts and address the rising cost of food and energy.
