In Race To Become UK’s Next Prime Minister, Liz Truss Defeats Rushi Sunak
On Tuesday, September 6, the foreign secretary will succeed Boris Johnson and become the third woman to hold the position in the country. Compared to Mr. Sunak’s slightly over 60,000, she received just over 81,000.
After taking office, Ms. Truss is anticipated to give a speech in front of Number 10 before starting to appoint her cabinet.
On Tuesday, Mr. Johnson and his successor will depart from tradition and travel to Balmoral rather than Buckingham Palace to meet Queen Elizabeth, who will request that the new leader form a government.
For safety reasons, the two would take separate flights to their destination.
Boris Johnson was forced to announce his resignation in July after months of scandal and will travel to Scotland to meet Queen Elizabeth on Tuesday at Balmoral Castle in Scotland to formally tender his resignation.
Ms. Truss has promised to announce further help to shield consumers within a week of taking over. She claims that the UK’s high tax burden is the cause of the country’s slow growth and wants to deliver £30 billion in tax cuts through an emergency budget later this month.
