Britain PM: Foreign Minister Liz Truss (47) has won the race for the post of leader in the ruling Conservative Party. He defeated the former finance minister Rishi Sunak of Indian origin in a tough struggle. Now she will take over as the Prime Minister. They will be faced with the challenges of dealing with inflation, industrial unrest and the possibility of recession in the country. Inflation rate in the country has reached 10.1 percent in July.
With the announcement of the victory of Liz Truss, the process of transfer of power has started. Incumbent Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who announced his decision to step down as prime minister in July after being embroiled in several scandals, will go to Scotland on Tuesday to formally submit his resignation letter to Queen Elizabeth II. Truss will also accompany them. The Queen will administer the oath to them to form the government. On September 7, she will go to the House of Commons as prime minister for the first time.
During her election campaign, Liz Truss promised immediate cuts to tax hikes and other collections, curbing inflation and offering solutions to rising energy prices within a week of taking office. However, some economists say that the problem of inflation, which is already acute, may become more serious after the tax cut.
Governance like President
A source close to Liz Truss says her cabinet will be strong, but ministers will need her advice to make decisions. That is, his style of governing will be like the presidential system. However, he would need to work hard to gain the confidence of the party MPs who supported Rishi Sunak. Government think-tank Sansthan says the weakness of the truss is that it is not the first choice of party MPs.
Will address today from Prime Minister’s residence
Truss will return to London after being sworn in as the Queen. Here will be his first speech to the country from the Prime Minister’s official residence 10, Downing Street. She will elect her cabinet at around 4 pm. The Queen will virtually administer the oath to these ministers. After this, the head of the department will perform the ceremony of handing over their seals to the ministers.
