Rishi Sunak is the new Prime Minister of Great Britain after winning the support of an overwhelming majority of the Conservative Parliamentary Party following a disastrous reign Liz Truss.

Mr. Sunak is a familiar face after serving as Boris Johnsonchancellor in everything Corona virus infection covid-19 pandemic, when he ran a £69bn holiday scheme to keep people in work and the Eat Out to Help Out campaign to boost economic growth.

At the time, he was also criticized after he got into the Partygate a furor over which he received a fixed penalty notice, over revelations about his wealthy wife’s tax strategies and over his unpopular spring statement earlier this year, which was seen as not going far enough to protect the public from a worsening cost-of-living crisis.

Many Tories also did not forgive Mr Sunak for “flip-flopping” on Mr Johnson with the health secretary Sajid Javidafter the pair resigned in early July over the Chris Pincher scandal, which sparked a deluge that eventually led to the departure of more than 60 ministers and eventually forced the prime minister out of office.

That sentiment is believed to have been a factor in his defeat in this summer’s protracted leadership contest to replace Mr Johnson, which Ms Truss eventually won, to the chagrin of almost everyone.

On a more positive note for Mr Sunak, the disastrous nature of her six-week premiership proved that every one of his criticisms of her “fabulous” economic policies was entirely valid, giving him the legitimacy he needed to win a second term , when asked and will hopefully reassure global financial markets, which have so lost faith in Britain under Ms Truss.
