New UK PM to Face Troubles on First Day in Office

London: England will get to know today, who will be its next prime minister, with Liz Truss expected to be named leader of the governing Conservative Party and the replacement of Boris Johnson.

The outcome will be declared at 12:30 pm (5 pm IST), after foreign minister Truss and her opponent, former finance minister Rishi Sunak, spent the summer rallying help among the Conservative Party members who cast the last vote.

Long the leader in the competition to supplant Johnson, Truss, whenever selected, will turn into the Conservatives’ fourth prime minister since a 2015 election. Over that period the nation has been pounded from one crisis to another and presently faces what is estimated to be a long recession set off by soaring inflation which hit 10.1 % in July.

The 47-year-old has reliably been in front of 42-year-old Mr. Sunak in polling among the assessed 200,000 Tory members qualified to cast a ballot.

Boris Johnson had to declare his resignation in July following quite a while of scandal and he will venture out to Scotland to meet Queen Elizabeth on Tuesday to tender his resignation formally. His successor will follow him and be approached to shape an administration.
